KCI was contracted end of March by GeoSea for the design of seafastenings and related equipment that will be installed on the installation vessel that GeoSea will deploy for the offshore installation of foundations for the Hohe See project.
The scope of work includes the design of seafastenings for 3 monopiles; 3 transition pieces; 3 anode cages; the pile driving Hydrohammer and the Noise Mitigation System. Everything, except for the monopiles will be transported vertically in order to make optimum use of the available deck space taking into account the Installation Vessel ‘s structure, stability and logistical operations on deck.
In addition to the seafastenings a monopile upending bucket will be designed. The upending bucket is used to safely bring the monopiles from horizontal to vertical using one single crane.
Engineering work will be carried out in close cooperation with the GeoSea project team in Bremen, Germany.
