VIDEO: Behemoth Pieter Schelte at Sea

The world’s largest offshore platform vessel Pieter Schelte, currently under construction for the Allseas at Daewoo shipyard, in Okpo, South Korea was caught on camera in all its might while undergoing sea trials.

The sea trials started mid-September. When built, Pieter Schelte will have a topsides lift capacity of 48,000 t and a jacket lift capacity of 25,000 t.

Her pipelay tension capacity will be 2,000 t, doubling the capacity of Allseas’ Solitaire and thereby surpassing her as the world’s largest pipelay vessel.

Delivery of the completed topsides lift and pipelay vessel is expected in the second half of 2014, ready for offshore operations early 2015.
