VBMS has successfully completed a remote platform tie-back project - platform L8-P4 to L6-B - for Wintershall Noordzee B.V. The scope of work for VBMS consisted of the engineering, installation and burial of a 19.5 kilometre umbilical, at a water depth of 29 meters.

The J-tube pull-ins were performed directly from the cable-laying vessel Ndurance via its quadrant system without any interruption or temporary lay-down of the umbilical. VBMS deployed a specialised burial vessel for the post-installation jet trenching. A follow-up as-laid survey of the umbilical route verified that the burial exceeded the requirements in order to ensure optimal protection of the umbilical.

L6-B platform
The L6-B platform is a remote tie-back to L8-P4 in the L blocks in the Dutch sector of the North Sea, located approximately 30 kilometres northwest of Den Helder. The platform is the newest addition to the Wintershall offshore assets in this sector.
