Three employees from Tratec Halvorsen ensure that the offshore life of a 1989 hot water boiler is extended.

- We now have three men offshore. They will replace smoke pipes and do a general maintenance job so that the boiler can be recertified, says Narve Tunheim, head of temperature-controlled equipment in Tratec Halvorsen.

The 1.5 megawatt boiler is used to heat a module on an oil platform in the North Sea.

- The job is estimated to take 14 days. We do some such work during the year. In addition to boiler life extensions, we of course also produce new ones, says Tunheim.
