Collaborative approach pays dividends on Wikinger installation programme
Posted on: 17/06/2016

UK-based Large Diameter Drilling (LDD) has collaborated with Acteon sister companies Utec and Menck to deliver a foundation solution. They will also deliver a new-build subsea pre-piling template (PPT) to Offshore WindForce WIK (OWF), the joint venture between Boskalis and Volker Stevin International, where 70 turbine foundations for the Wikinger offshore windfarm will be transported and installed.

LDD’s PPT is being used to pre-install foundation piles into the seabed, before the four-legged jacket foundation is placed by vessel Giant 7. A subsea hydraulic system will level the PPT on the seabed and allow operators to adjust pile position and verticality. LDD was responsible for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the hydraulic, survey and control systems onto the PPT. The survey system was designed and supplied to LDD by Acteon sister company, Utec.

LDD, Utec and Menck will provide ongoing operational support to OWF during the offshore campaign, through a single operator contract between OWF and LDD. Commissioning and testing of the PPT has been completed and field operations have commenced.
