Countdown to Collision: Troll A Norway
At 472 meters it’s taller than the Empire State Building and is the biggest structure ever moved across the surface of the earth. This film reveals a snapshot in the life of the platform. As an arctic weather system hits Western Europe, Troll must double its gas supply in just 34 hours. We follow the crew as they tackle seven critical challenges using seven ingenious inventions to meet their deadline. We reveal the extraordinary risks they face and the amazing engineering advances that make it possible to pump vast quantities of gas from a reservoir 1400 metres under the North Sea to homes thousands of kilometers away. The film explores the remarkable legs of the platform, the engineering inventions that safeguard against explosions, the groundbreaking technology that prevents fatal collisions and the revolutionary lifeboats. Each of the seven ingenious inventions will ensure Countdown to Collision….averted.
