SAL completes Horns Rev 3 shipments

SAL Heavy Lift has handled the transport of 49 transition pieces for the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm on behalf of GeoSea.

Transition pieces measuring 32.27 m tall and weighing 530 tons (480.8 tonnes) were transported from fabrication yards in Aalborg, Denmark and Vlissingen, the Netherlands. Loaded on board the heavy lift vessel Lone, they were delivered to the Danish port of Esbjerg using a bespoke seafastening grillage and clamping system.

A unique transition piece lifting tool was also designed to replace the usual crane hook for the lifting operations.

According to Andrei Lupan, logistics manager at GeoSea, all the necessary structures were designed, manufactured, load tested, certified and delivered in time to guarantee a timely mobilisation.

SAL Heavy Lift is a member of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) in Germany.
