Offshore contractor Van Oord transported the first foundation to the project site using its heavy lift vessel Bokalift One. The jackets were successful installed using a bespoke jacket lifting tool designed by Temporary Works Design (TWD).

Weighing just over 25 tonnes and with a lifting capacity of over 1,000 tonnes, the lifting tool was able to speed up the installation by lifting the 60 m-high jackets into place.

The remote-controlled jacket lifting tool is also adaptable to different flange diameters, which makes it suitable for use on future installation projects, said TWD.
