– The Dunlin Alpha Decom Model for Fairfield Energy was Featured on Offshore Europe’s News Video –
A physical model has become a key element in supporting the technical and stakeholder messages on the Dunlin Alpha decommissioning project. Illustrating the configuration and scale of the structure is a basic but important function. However, the ability to deconstruct the model module-by-module and demonstrate various options for cutting and removing the concrete legs/columns or the conductor bundles, elevates functionality from a static model to a versatile, dynamic demonstration tool.
This “Duplo for Decom” approach brings engagement and clarity to the narrative of the decommissioning process – which is especially useful for non-technical stakeholders. In addition, it has become a centre of focus for more detailed technical discussions by engineers planning the process.
