Seajacks awarded Conbit the contract to engineer a solution for the handling of the Meerwind project monopiles. One year later, the new jack-up vessel has been supplied, has finished its first assignment and is equipped with all the tools necessary for its first big job. The completion of this project marks a new milestone for the Conbit team.
As is the case in a lot of engineering jobs, this one started off with an idea. The idea involved the use of SPMTs to move monopiles from their seafastening into the fire line. The unique seafastening concept confirmed for Seajacks that Conbit was the right party to complete the project. The agreement was signed after the summer, and the Conbit engineers started considering feasibility and preliminary design. Experience in the offshore oil and gas industry were of great benefit during the early stages of this project.
