Mon, 10 October 2016
Seaway Heavy Lifting has awarded Dutch company Seatools a contract for the design and delivery of a piling template instrumentation and control system.
It will be used for the offshore pile installation operations which are currently linked to the construction of the Beatrice offshore wind farm.
Jan Frumau, managing director at Seatools, said: “The contract perfectly matches our strong value proposition for the offshore renewables market: an extensive proven subsea technology toolbox, combined with strong multidisciplinary engineering capabilities.”
“Thanks to this combination, we are able to deliver innovative, yet reliable and robust solutions. The project will incorporate innovative designs based on proven technologies backed up by a solid redundancy and back-up strategy.”
The contract includes the complete mechanical, electric, hydraulic, and software design of the pile template instrumentation and control system.
Seatools hopes to bring its positioning accuracy, high installation speeds, robustness, and reliability in the presence of high shock loads and vibrations, to the project to make it a success.
