July 21st, 1997

On January 21st, 1997, the Campo Britannia oil platform started on its way to the North Sea where it will exploit gas and crude oil

This is a 21,000 ton tubular structure with a troncated pyramid shape, 158 meters tall and 70 meters wide at the base, waiting to be towed to the North Sea where it will be installed 60 kms from the coast of Scotland after a trip of approximately 2 weeks.

The construction work took 22 months employing 1,600,000 hours (1,000 employees) under the charge of highly specialized staff, using advanced cutting and welding technologies and handling heavy elements and lifting components. It is the largest jacket that Dragados Off-Shore has built in Cadiz and the largest that is currently under construction in the world. For this reason it is an important step for this company in its level of world competitiveness in this type of contract.
