Allseas has commissioned Deawoo in Korea to build the world’s largest Crane Vessel: ‘Pieter Schelte’. The vessel is a kind of catamaran, made of two supertankers designed to lift redundant platforms (weighing up to 48.000 tons = 200 Boeing 747s or 4 Eiffel-towers) from their pedestal and remove them.
Moreover the Pieter Schelte is not only a platform installation / decommissioning, but also a pipelay vessel, that places more than 7 kilometers of (oil/gas)pipes a day, at a depth of down to 3500 meters. The total surface of the vessel covers more than 6 football pitches and it is equipped with the latest and most innovative controlling and driving technologies. Obviously not any company is invited to come to Korea and work on this prestigious project. State-of-the-art surveying technology and expertise is a pre-requisite to assemble all parts and components. That explains why Coenradie surveyors have bought their tickets to Korea.
