Allseas to Give Pioneering Spirit New Jacket Lift System

According to Allseas, the Pioneering Spirit has revolutionised platform installations and removals with single-lift technology and now they are enhancing her capability and versatility further, with a revolutionary Jacket lift system.

Integral to the system are two 170-m hinged beams with integrated tail extensions, which lift and support jacket structures during transport and installation and removal operations.

Each as long as one and a half football pitches and equal in weight to the Eiffel Tower, the beams are the largest S690 steel grade structures ever built!

“Now, after a two-and-a-half-year build time involving more than 1000 people across four fabrication sites, the beams and tail extensions are complete and loaded onto our cargo barge Iron Lady for transport to Rotterdam, where we will install them on Pioneering Spirit next month.”

Built to install and remove entire jackets up to 20,000 tonnes in a single lift and able to operate in hostile weather conditions, our new technology offers a safer and faster alternative to conventional systems.
