- Business & Finance
In today’s spotted we bring you the recently delivered self-propelled jack-up vessel, the Seajacks Scylla, which has been characterized as the world’s largest and most advanced wind farm installation and offshore construction vessel.
The ABS-classed vessel was delivered to Seajacks International, offshore installation and maintenance contractor in the offshore wind and oil and gas sectors, by Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea in November.
Based on the Gusto MSC NG14000X design, the Seajacks Scylla, has more than 8,000 metric tons of available variable deck load. Equipped with a 1,540-metric-ton leg-encircling crane and a usable deck space in excess of 5,000 sq m the unit is outfitted with 105-m legs with the ability to install components in water depths to 65 m.
The rig is capable of meeting the installation needs of jumbo-monopiles, jackets, and turbines of future wind farms in deeper waters farther from shore.
In early December, Seajacks Scylla will begin her journey from South Korea to Europe on-board the heavy load carrier vessel, HLV Osprey, and is expected to arrive in Rotterdam around the end of January. Seajacks operations teams will then prepare the vessel for her first project next spring.
