In 2004 the Britannia satellites Phase 1 project Heerema Vlissingen was awarded the procurement and fabrication contract of the jacket for the Bridge linked platform by ConocoPhilips UK.
Subsequently in 2005 Heerema’s yard in Hartlepool received the contract award for the construction of the Bridge linked topside, the mono ethylene glycol (MEG) reclamation module and the bridge. 

The Britannia satellites Phase 1 project comprises the development of the Callanish and Brodgar fields via tie-backs to a new platform, bridge-linked to the original Britannia platform, located 210 km north east of Aberdeen, UK.

Fabrication, commissioning and load out of a new BLP platform containing production facilities which was designed to develop reserves from the Callanish and Brodgar fields through the existing Britannia Platform.

The contract also included for the fabrication, commissioning and load out of the link span bridge to the Britannia platform and the MEG (Mono Ethylene Glycol) Reclamation Module.  The MEG module was installed onto the BLP platform and hooked up prior to load out. 

The contract scope comprises the procurement, fabrication and load-out of the jacket and piles for the bridge linked platform. The four legged jacket of 170 meters in height contains 10 caissons and an under deck platform that supports various caisson pipework and ESD valving. The Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG) Reclamation module was built at Heerema’s Hartlepool yard
