Maasvlakte 2 Needs Dredging for ‘Pieter Schelte’ Job

‘Pieter Schelte’, the biggest vessel in the world, is to be completed in the port of Rotterdam. Owner and designer Allseas and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have signed an agreement to this effect. 

Final assembly of Pieter Schelte will take place in the Alexiahaven. The inner lake of Maasvlakte 2 currently provides the necessary space. A special pit will be dredged there for the vessel.

In the port of Rotterdam, the 65 metre long beams of the topsides lift system will be installed. The lifting beams are being constructed in Italy and will be transported by ship to the Netherlands.

Pieter Schelte is 382 metres long and 124 metres wide. The length, in combination with the massive width, makes this vessel unique. The vessel is intended for installing and removing topsides and jackets of large offshore oil and gas platforms in a single lift. The vessel can lift topsides of offshore platforms weighing up to 48,000 tonnes and jackets up to 25,000 tonnes.

The plan is for Pieter Schelte to arrive in Rotterdam at the end of 2014.
