Long video but worth a watch if you want to see one of the most unique ships of the last decade in action.
The ship is Allseas’ Pioneering Spirit, which recently completed its first project removing the 13,500-tonne topside of the Yme platform in August in the North Sea.
At 382 meters (1,253 feet) long by 124 meters wide (407 feet), Pioneering Spirit (formerly Pieter Schelte) is one of the biggest ships ever constructed. The vessel features a unique twin-hull, with a 122m long and 59m wide slot in the bow that allows the ship to install and remove decommissioned topsides and jackets of large offshore oil and gas platforms weighing up to 48,000 tonnes with a single lift. Pioneering Spirit is also equipped for laying large pipelines with a capacity, making it the largest pipelay vessel in the world.
