VIDEO: MPI Adventure Performance at Offshore Wind Farm
MPI Adventure, owned by the Stokesley-based MPI Offshore, is currently operating out of the Port of Hartlepool on the installation of wind turbines at the Teesside Offshore Wind Farm.
Designed to transport, lift and install wind turbines and their foundations, she is the world’s most advanced and most efficient WTIV, in terms of jacking speed, deck space, lifting capacity and positioning capabilities (DP2).
Key features on the MPI Adventure include a 1,000-tonne-capacity main crane, plus a 50-tonne-capacity auxiliary crane, accommodation capacity for 112 persons, a maximum operating depth of 40 metres (at 5.0m leg penetration and 7.8m air gap) and an ability to jack with 6,000 tonnes of cargo onboard.
