Topsides Jack Up Video

Pinterest

Sometimes it’s hard to explain what we’re doing here in Korea and some of the crazy cool things that we’re getting to be a part of. This video is an example of one of those awesome things – in order to be transported to Russia, the Topsides had to be raised up in preparation to go on the barge that will that will take it there. A specialty contractor came in to do this for our project – it lifted the more than 42,000 Te Topsides that we work on every day up another ~20m. It was really interesting to watch this all come together – it was pretty remarkable to see it when it was finally lifted, too. To me, this is one of many reasons being an engineer is awesome – you don’t just get to see this on videos, but you get to see it in person and watch things happen that others may not think possible. I think that’s pretty darn cool. What do you think?
