BP Magnus Spine
2014 project for Aiken Group, Aberdeen for the BP Magnus platform. Winterhoff in Germany manufactured the spine fabrication and MKN the cooking equipment.
The project was to design and install a cantilevered cooking suite, which is a central services spine with all services hidden inside, off the floor. This type of installation is quite common in hospitals, schools etc but unusual on oil platforms due to complexity and natural movement of the rig.
The spine was built in Aiken’s construction warehouse in Inveraray, then dismantled for onward transport to the platform.
