For the Talisman Bunga Raya jacket, SPT Offshore’s patented technology ‘buoyancy in suction piles’ is used, making a platform wet tow feasible. This eliminates the use of a barge. The crane barge assisting the lowering of the jacket only needs to have a fractional capacity of the dead weight of the jacket, lowering costs and reducing the risks of an offshore heavy lift.
