After departing Rotterdam, the approx. 5,000-tonne heavy foundation jacket is standing on the seabed and piling of the substructure is underway. 11,000-tonne topsides to follow.
This is the first time Pioneering Spirit’s unique lift systems are being used to transport and install an entire converter platform for the offshore wind industry. Read more about our step into offshore wind here: http://bitly.ws/tB72
To make it possible, our engineers adapted existing lifting systems for pile driving technology to secure the jacket to the seabed, once again demonstrating our ability to execute technically challenging offshore projects.
