Offshore wind energy
With its unique 48,000 t single-lift capacity, Pioneering Spirit is perfect for the installation of high-voltage converter platforms. These heavy platforms collect, convert and transmit electricity generated by offshore wind farms to shore via a high-voltage export cable. Onshore, the electricity is converted to alternating current (AC) and introduced into the consumer electricity grid providing thousands of households with sustainable energy.
Pioneering Spirit will use her unique lift systems to transport and install an entire converter platform for the offshore wind industry for the first time on the DolWin6 project.
Apart from playing a key role in installing large offshore transformer stations, we also see a future role for Allseas in the installation of large monopiles and large turbines for the offshore wind industry.
