The Mariner A platform receives a new dishwasher
Over the last week, John Thresh replaced a Hobart conveyor rack dishwasher complete with new corner drying tunnel on the Mariner A platform, offshore.
The Mariner field is located on the East Shetland Platform in the UK Block 9/11a. This lies approximately 150 kilometers east of the Shetland Islands.
John arrived to find the old dishwasher in a poor state and very much in need of replacement. He worked for much of the night to extract the old unit and drying tunnel, and clean up the area with the help of the platform crew.
Working hard for several more nights, John and the crew rebuilt the drying tunnel and fitted the new dishwasher unit, securing it in. He refitted the doors, so they could be safely tucked away. Once the machine had been tested and commissioned it was up and running and ready to be used.
With this, the job was complete for the hard-working crew on the Mariner A platform.
