Acta Marine Preparing to Install BlueTec Tidal Platform

Acta Marine’s Coastal Chariot will soon install the floating BlueTec platform, south of the island of Texel in The Netherlands.

Acta Marine has coincided the installation process with Van Oord Offshore. In June, the Coastal Chariot will tow and hook-up the platform.

The DP1 Ultra Shallow Draft Multipurpose Support Vessel will then attach it to the seabed by using four Stevpris anchors.
