Wind Energy – Spreader Bar
Seaway 7 has awarded Huisman a contract for the delivery of a 3,000mt Spreader Bar.
The Spreader Bar will support installation of offshore wind turbines and is able to handle monopiles with the largest diameter and length currently available.
Although the Spreader Bar will be built specifically to Seaway 7’s requirements, it is based on a proven Huisman design. It is optimised to increase both safety and efficiency in monopile and transition piece installation.
Safe operations are ensured via hands free sling handling of monopiles, remotely controlled by an exchangeable battery pack.
Seaway 7 will initially employ the Spreader Bar during its execution of the third phase of the Dogger Bank Wind Farm, Dogger Bank C.
