Pieter Schelte in Rotterdam
Today at 2 pm, the Pieter Schelte arrived in Rotterdam. With a length of 382 metres and a phenomenal width of 124 metres, this is the biggest ship in the world. It was designed and developed by the Dutch-Swiss offshore company Allseas.
The Pieter Schelte will spend the next four months in Rotterdam undergoing final assembly in the inner lake of Maasvlakte 2.
Among other things, 65-meter long support beams will be fitted to the ship.
Including this work, the spin-off of the total construction of the vessel for Dutch business is estimated at €700 million. This involves 440 different Dutch companies.
A special pit needed to be dredged there for the Pieter Schelte.
