Transocean Winner rig almost ready for Hawk heavy lifter.

Following news earlier this week that therecently grounded Transocean Winner rig was waiting on weather to continue sail away preparations, work has begun to move the rig aboard the semi-submersible vessel Hawk.

In an update on Thursday, the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said work had started to lift four of the primary anchors of the Transocean Winner rig in Broad Bay, in anticipation of moving it onto the semi-submersible heavy lift and transportation vessel Hawk.

This initial work could take about 12 hours, MCA said, adding that the four secondary anchors will also be removed, also a 12 hour operation, leaving the rig attached to tugs.

After days of delays, Transocean Winner rig set to leave UK.

 

After weeks spent moored in Broad Bay, Scotland, the Transocean Winner semi-submersible drilling rig is finally set to depart the UK waters.

The rig had been stranded near a beach close to Carloway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland after the harsh weather blew it ashore in August. After that, the rig was towed to Broad Bay where it has been waiting on weather to be loaded aboard the semi-submersible heavy lift and transportation vessel, the Hawk.

According to an update by the Maritime and Coastguard agency on Friday, the Transocean Winner rig has been loaded onto the semi-submersible heavy lift ship. The Hawk has deballasted and the rig is now clear of the water, the MCA said. The MCA verification aircraft was on scene on Thursday and no pollution was sighted or reported.
