Esbjerg, 13 December 2022 – The largest recycling project of offshore installations in Denmark’s history has successfully completed. After 2.5 years of dismantling work on the old platforms and structures from the Tyra field, 98.5% of the material has now been reused and recycled.

A crucial part of the Tyra Redevelopment project was the removal and recycling of more than 50,000 tons of steel of the old Tyra, or an equivalent of seven Eiffel Towers. We had to build many processes and guidelines from scratch as no regulations existed in Denmark by that time. However, now that we mark the successful conclusion of recycling, we are many experiences richer, and I’m sure that our Tyra case will contribute to a wealth of knowledge needed for future projects,

says Lars Bo Christiansen, Tyra Redevelopment Project Director Deputy for TotalEnergies EP Denmark.
Recycling and reuse have been an integral part of the Tyra Redevelopment project from the start, where TotalEnergies and the Danish Underground Consortium partners have set high demands for the recycling yards and envisioned sustainability in all stages of the planning process. Examples include the requirements of how much was to be recycled from the platforms as well as specifications as to how the materials would be used. It has required thorough preparatory work to ensure the best dismantling and recycling process – both in terms of safety and sustainability.
We are proud that M.A.R.S. has been chosen for this exciting project with a focus on the old Tyra platforms being recycled in the most environmentally friendly way. Our yard is built from scratch for that particular purpose, and therefore it has been possible to embed innovative solutions for safety, sustainability, and the environment. Our collaboration with the Port of Frederikshavn and the local authorities around the creation of the yard led to our modern and safe world-class facility and first set of exceptional recycling results,

says Kim Thygesen, Director of M.A.R.S. Europe.
