Thialf has to make two round trips to the environmental recycling base which had been established at Vats north of Stavanger, carrying modules weighing a total of 11 000 tonnes.

This was followed by removal of the topsides on West Ekofisk 2/4 D before attention turned to Albuskjell 2/4 F, where the jacket was removed. Because of its size, this structure was split horizontally into two sections before transport to land.

Thialf was at work until mid-August, making a total of six round trips to the Vats facility which added up in weight terms to about 25 000 tonnes.[REMOVE]Fotnote: Pioner no 2, 2011.
