Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) is making progress in the installation of the 84 Jackets for the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm, North East of Edingburgh in the North Sea.

The photo above shows the first jacket of Cluster 1 with a weight of 950 Tons being loaded on a barge for shipment to the Offshore location, where it will be installed on the pre-piled foundation piles and grouted by means of the monohull crane vessel Oleg Strashnov.

Three subcontractors: Smulders (BE), Bladt (DK) and BiFab(UK) are building the jackets for SHL for various water depths varying from 40-60 m.

Smulders near Anwerp with its assembly yard near Glasgow has delivered the first barges with jackets and uses the Sarens SGC120 ringcrane for load-out of the jackets onto the transport barges.

Watch the videos below:

BiFab North of Edingburgh is in the process of constructing the rest of the jackets.

Si chiama Beatrice, ed è il più potente mulino a vento (più precisamente "turbina eolica") del mondo. Le sue pale sono lunghe più di 61 metri, cui va aggiunta una torre alta altrettanto, più una base che affonda le proprie fondamenta fino a 45 metri sotto la superficie del mare

Climbing Wind Turbines for a Living | That's Amazing

Gepubliceerd op 19 jan. 2017

These days, giant wind turbines are supplying more and more of our clean energy. And when they break down, they need to be fixed fast.

It's a job only a few people are equipped to handle. Those who are afraid of heights need not apply. Rock climber Jessica Kilroy, for one, loves the challenge of blade repair. And though she makes dangling at dizzying heights look easy, her path to becoming a wind turbine technician has been anything but that.
