A joint venture between Hochtief Construction and the project and heavy-lift carrier provider Beluga Shipping has commissioned the construction of a special jack-up vessel for the more rapid assembly of offshore wind turbines from the Polish shipyard Crist.

The vessel should go into service in 2012. It was agreed that no details of the contract value would be disclosed. Beluga Hochtief Offshore developed the concept and the design to handle these tasks and will also operate and charter the vessel once it is constructed. In addition, the jack-up vessel will be used by Hochtief for offshore construction jobs. The jack-up vessel will be able to install more than 80 wind turbines per year, each with a height of over 120 meters, in water depths of up to 50 meters. Elaborate simulations have shown that the special structure can also be deployed when the sea is rough.
