If heavier topsides are required, the topsides can be lifted on the tripod substructure seperatly.

Benefits of the SIP-1

  • Proven proprietary technology with 4 successful SIP-1 installations
  • Offshore installation in less than 16 hours
  • Platform can easily be relocated, spreading CAPEX
  • Fabrication costs are reduced significantly, since no pile sleeves, -catchers, -centralizers, mud mats and leveling padeyes are required
  • No pile drive-, leveling- and grout spread and operation required
  • Noise free installation
  • Cold commissioning can be per formed onshore
  • Engineering and installation by one party, hence SPT Offshore takes over installation and in-situ responsibility
  • If buoyancy tanks are applied, no heavy lift vessel is required for installation
