GeoSea Picks Houlder Kit for Horns Rev 3

GeoSea will use Houlder’s pile lifting tool on the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm in the Danish North Sea.

Vattenfall’s Horns Rev 3 will consist of 49 MHI Vestas 8.3MW wind turbines with a total capacity of 406.7MW. The wind farm covers an 88 square kilometre area 29–44 kilometres west of Houstrup Strand on Jutland’s west coast.

GeoSea is in charge of installing the 49 foundations, and A2SEA, soon to be a subsidiary of GeoSea, will install the turbines at the site.

“Our lifting tool has been designed for safer and faster offshore wind farm installation operations,” said James Russell, Houlder’s Marine Equipment Director.

”The remote controlled hook-up and release system engages directly with a foundation pile’s flange. This eliminates the need for additional lifting points or straps – the optimal solution where the lifting point overhangs the deck of the installation vessel or is out of reach. For the current project the tool will be configured to lift 6.5m diameter monopiles at 690t.”

Houlder’s range of equipment and services will be highlighted at the Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference 2017, Amsterdam, 10-11th October.
