Mad Dog 2: Loading out 12 Suction Piles

In August 2020 Core loaded out 12 of the Holdback and Mooring Suction Piles that were brought to Core in July 2020. Core first installed the vertical and horizontal lift rigging. Then made preparations to the piles such as, opening valves and installing deployment tools onto them. Our 660-ton crane lifted the piles, adjusted the cradles, walked them to the vessel from storage, and loaded them into their sea fastening hardware. The suction piles would travel to the installation vessel at the Mad Dog 2 Platform in the Gulf of Mexico. This project was made successful from a global participation and Core Industries is grateful to play a part in it.
