FLEXIBLE SEAFASTENING AND LIFTING ARRANGEMENTS
Type 183 HLV Svenja played a vital role in the extension of the Walney Offshore Wind Farm in the North West of England. In total the DP 1 vessel transported 87 transition pieces and 87 monopiles from ports in Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark to the project harbour in Belfast in 31 consecutive voyages.
With a height of up to 30 m, a diameter of up to seven metres and a single weight of up to 579 t, the TPs were amongst the largest ones ever built. Flexible seafastening and lifting arrangements ensured to switch between shipping monopiles and transition pieces and to match the tight project schedule.
