Jacket at Ardersier - c1983

I think this was a Marathon jacket for the Brae field. The picture was taken from the TLP deck which was being built on skids at the west end of the yard.

Best bunch of surveyors in the world!!!!!
I worked on the Power generation module for this jacket. The designers cocked up the head heights for the generator skids and we had to lift the ruddy lot clear with those two transilifts.

The skid beam welds all cracked and had to be gouged out and re- welded, This took 3 months of work 24/7, the rumour was that it was due to lamella tearing, but that was bullshit. The original weld configuration had beed part filled with any shite the welders could put in like re bar and welded over.
