    Second Type 183 heavy lifter nearing completion

    Vessel & ROV News // February 4, 2011

    In March 2011, SAL will take into service its second Type 183 heavy lift vessel.

    The vessel is under construction at the Sietas shipyard in Hamburg. The innovative ship will be the second heavy lift vessel with 2 x 1,000 tonne SWL cranes. It is also capable of maintaining a speed of 20 knots.

    The second SAL new building will be equipped with a DP2 dynamic positioning system. This will allow customers to use these vessels as a combined solution for both transport and offshore installation including subsea handshakes.

    The vessels will be suitable for offshore wind turbine installation, in particular for installation of piles, mounting of transition pieces and transporting components from shore to offshore installation platforms.
