Offshore Wind Farms never stops. Since 2009 5 MW turbines the fleet must be ready to install 15 MW + by 2025. This requires proven design and an innovate solutions in next generation fleet. BoDo constructor project required a very through research and several iteration already at the early stage. Elements of jack up, mooring ans anchoring systems have been combined to create a unique system for moving objects. Wind Farm Installation Vessels has become a challenge for engineers. Right design optimisation makes the vessels capable to transport and install heavy equipment in various weather condition. Similarly a transport fleet is a key factor for entire process of Wind Farm installation. Combination of semi-submersible heavy lift vessel equipped with a crane gives to the vessel a great flexibility.

The vessel is designed as a self-elevating, self-propelled wind turbine installation vessel adapted to transport from U.S. ports and install on wind farm place monopiles, wind turbines, and other equipment in U.S. coast in compliance with Jones Act.

The vessel is designed to carry different types of cargoes described below:

  • 6 monopiles with 12 m, and length 120 m in vertical position, or,
  • 8 completed wind turbines tower with power of 12-14 MW, or
  • or other heavy cargo with weight not exceeding 20 000 t.
  • The vessel is equipped with specially designed leg encircling main crane with range up to 3500 mt SWL, and 2 auxiliary cranes with range up to 50 mt SWL.
  • Four 120 m length lattice legs with rack and pinion jacking system is used for self-lifting operations.
  • Legs with spudcans are located at main deck ends, both sides. For estimated total lifting weight of abt. 55 000 tons, average one leg load is abt. 16 250 tons and for assumed spudcan area 4x250m2 pressure on sea bottom is abt. 65 t/m2.
