The topsides structure of the Deep Panuke gas installation left Halifax today on the BOA Barge 34 towed by the tug Atlantic Kestrel, assisted by Atlantic Kingfisher and Atlantic Larch. The destination is indeed Sheet Harbour, NS, where the structure will be demolished.
I mistakenly stated in a prior post that the topside structure was lifted off by the crane barge Thialf. In fact the topside, which is equipped with jack-up legs, was lowered onto the barge. Presumably when it reaches Sheet Harbour a reverse process will occur and the barge will be "slid out" from under.
