Today’s ship photos come to us via the heavy lift operator, Jumbo Shipping, who has just announced it has won a contract to transport and install all 111 transition pieces, or TP’s, for the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm located offshore Denmark. The contract was awarded following Jumbo’s successful TP-installation work on the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm (UK), pictured in the photos here, using the DP2 heavy lift vessel Jumbo Javelin.
The 111 TP’s for the Anholt project will be installed in a similar method to that of the Greater Gabbard project, utilizing one of two DP2 heavy lift vessels, Jumbo Javelin and Fairplayer. Equipped with two 900t Huisman mast cranes, the vessels can load, transport and install up to 9 TP’s at a time, each measuring 17m tall by 5.5m diameter and weighing in at 200t.
Mobilization for the Anholt project is planned in Rotterdam in early April 2012.
