The utility shaft houses the platforms’ operating systems. It includes pipe work, heating and air-conditioning, and electrical controls. Construction of the shaft included fabrication and assembly of electrical service and instrumentation, a telecommunication system, and a fire and gas system. Approximately 220 people spent 350,000 work hours on this part of the contract. Work was often performed in confined spaces, because cables had to be installed in a 100-metre shaft.
