Senior Heavy Lift Engineer

Senior Heavy Lift Engineer

Allseas’ 382 m long, 124 m wide dynamically positioned platform installation/decommissioning and pipelay vessel Pioneering Spirit, formerly Pieter Schelte, was delivered at the end of 2014. The completed topsides lift and pipelay vessel will commence offshore operations in the second half of 2015.

Pioneering Spirit has a topsides lift capacity of 48,000 t and a jacket lift capacity of 25,000 t. Her pipelay tension capacity is 2000 t, doubling the capacity of Allseas’ Solitaire and thereby surpassing her as the world’s largest pipelay vessel.

In 2013 Allseas announced plans to build a second single-lift vessel larger than Pioneering Spirit, to be delivered in 2020. It is intended for installation and removal of the very largest existing platforms.
