What a way to end the week! Today we celebrated the graduation of our latest cohort of apprentices - all 140 of them.
Our Chief Executive, Paul Foster, told them: ‘This is the first phase of your career and there is no limit to what you can achieve. You are the future of the business and the industry.’
Pictured here with Paul is Project Management Apprentice, Andrew Bennett, who claimed the top accolade, collecting the Rexel UK Community Award for his contribution to the community during his apprenticeship.

What does it take to recover subsea infrastructure from start to finish? Follow along with this summer’s offshore work scope for the Janice, James and Leadon Decommissioning Project by watching the full-length video on the Integrated Solutions page on our website.
62 years ago today, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II opened Calder Hall.
The world’s first commercial power station stopped operating in 2003.
The station generated 13,724 GW for the National Grid during its 47 years of operations.
Work is now taking place to remove the fuel from the station’s four reactors.
Two of the reactors are already empty with the other two not far behind.
Reactor 3 will be the last to be emptied with the last batch of fuel taken out next Summer.
FROM THE MAGAZINE: Substantial tranche of decommissioning beckons
- Decommissioning of oil and gas platforms has been a topic of discussion for a number of years and now a number of signals are indicating that this perennial non-starter could finally spring to life. David Kershaw reports. Check out the full story on our website now. Link in bio. #projectcargo#hlpfi#heavylift#decommissioning
Decommissioning tonight. We retire these flags until May 4 2019. Celebrating another great year!
But......Do not fear we are here! The launch is running until November 15th and dock staff is ready to help with your winter storage needs.#hyc#huntingtonyachtclub#decommissioning

What does 18 years under the sea look like? Here’s the before and after of one of the towheads from the Leadon field from when we supported the installation back in 2000, to the recovery this summer as part of the decommissioning project.
Read more about the project at the Integrated Solutions page on our website.
While the offshore scope for the lift of the Leadon towheads took place over just one month, planning started back in spring 2017. Here’s a word from Project Manager, Philip Crighton: “The Leadon towheads had been installed without being lifted subsea, and therefore, were not designed with a lift point. With this in mind, the recovery method was designed around using a basket sling arrangement. The successful result adds to our track record of delivering turn-key project solutions in a cost-effective manner.” Read more about the project on our website.
In July 2018, the Saipem7000 landed the last piece of the Miller Jacket onshore, signalling the completion of the removal scope of the BP Miller EPRD project. This was the largest decommissioning campaign in the North Sea in 2018 with a total of 28,000t of topsides and 11,500t of jackets removed. The project places Saipem in a leading role in the ever-growing decommissioning sector, as it moves on to the next target of 97% recycling rate at disposal by 2020.
The Brent Delta
The Brent Delta was originally based 115 miles from Shetland. Weighing over 24,000 ton is was the first of its kind to be removed using the single lift technique.
The Pioneering Spirit then brought the top side here to Hartlepool to be decommissioned at Able UK where 98% of the materials will be reused or recycled.
I was lucky enough to go to one of the open days at Able UK when it first came to town (pictures 1&2). The 3rd picture is of the rig today, it's amazing to see how much it has changed.
The last photo from the Brent Bravo which is the next rig to come to Able next year. The rope access team is preparing the legs dangling 100m high in one of the legs.
