Frøy Platform during removal

The Frøy topsides being lifted of the jacket. Note the cones under the deck section, which were used to position the topsides on the jacket during construction.

The cones are called Stabbing Guides.
Am I right in saying that the Froy Jacket was built at Nigg. I seem to remember installing /fighting with flexible piling grout hoses inside the legs at "altitude"and at one stage the winch for pulling them through developing a "problem" and the drum of hose (which was suspended on a Manitowoc 4100 Fly-Jib)nearly descending groundwards plus crane boom !Oops The hoses were all fastened to brackets on the inside of the legs with tie-wraps, and during pressure testing a few went "bang"
