Anholt is a result of Danish government policy, which aims for a society independent of fossil fuels. In 2020, 30% of gross consumption should come from renewable energy. For the Anholt contract, the TP’s will be loaded at Bladt Industries (Aalborg, Denmark). Every TP weighs approx. 200 t, is 17 m tall and has a diameter of approx. 5.5 m.
Mobilization is planned in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) early April 2012. The mobilization will include a motion compensated access bridge (for safe access to the TP when the vessel is on DP), a grout plant, a purpose-built lifting beam, two passive lifting compensators of in-house design, grillages and seafastenings. The two 900 t Huisman mast cranes will be re-reeved to their project specific configuration.
For Jumbo, the contract is a recognition of the safe and efficient TP-installation works for the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm (UK). Jumbo’s all-in-one installation method will be largely repeated for the Anholt contract. This method consists of loading 9 TP’s at a time, transport them to the site and install them.
