AF Gruppen has extensive experience in managing safe and efficient large construction and decommissioning projects. This has given us insight and knowledge to operate in demanding marine and offshore conditions. When offshore installations in the North Sea are no longer being used, Norwegian regulations and international agreements specify that they shall be removed. AF is a European leader specialising in the removal and recycling of offshore installations since 1994. Our expertise enables us to undertake the most complicated decommissioning work where we recycle up to 98% of the steel used on platforms. Our offshore company also supplies turnkey services in respect of cooling and ventilation for onshore and offshore installations, rigs and ships (HVAC). By virtue of our close involvement, we are able to create assets for our customers through our presence in Norway, Great Britain, and Asia. Offshore wind is an important enabler in the world’s energy transition where our experience is transferable. We create solutions that are adapted to future use and provide high customer value through safe and efficient project execution.
- Nominated for International Recycling Award
Marine growth from recycled platforms becomes nutritious fertiliser in soil. The British oil company TAQA, Reve Kompost and AF Offshore Decom have been nominated for an international sustainability award for decommissioning excellence.
- Significant floating production vessel, a recycling first for Norway
The largest recycling operation of a production vessel (FPSO) has started in Vats, Rogaland this week. The 235-metre-long ship was loaded-in by a float-over and subsequent site move operation. Now the vessel will be cleaned, dismantled and recycled. At least 97 per cent of the ship will be recycled.
