In close cooperation with Allseas, Iv-Consult is designing the tilting lift beams for the Jacket Lift System (JLS) of the Pieter Schelte vessel.
Pieter Schelte is a unique, single-lift offshore platform installation/decommissioning vessel capable of lifting topsides of up to 48,000 tons and jackets of up to 25,000 tons.
It will also be deployed for the installation of large-diameter oil and gas pipelines. Allseas is set to put its new vessel, Pieter Schelte, into service.
Iv-Consult’s primary contribution to its cooperation with Allseas is the structural design of the JLS, including all the tie-in points for external interfaces. Besides the beams, Iv-Consult is also designing the tail and jib, from the conceptual phase to the detail phase. Several hoisting and installation operations are conditionally dependent on the installation of the jib.
