Heerema's floating installation method
Heerema’s installation method avoids all interaction with the seabed, by utilizing a floating installation vessel to assemble the wind turbine generator components. The installation vessel will remain in the field, where it will load in the turbine components from feeder vessels.
This provides great logistical flexibility as well as a continuous installation cycle. The semi-submersible platform provides for a highly stable platform where the wind turbine is pre-assembled.
After the pre-assembly onboard, the turbine will be installed on the foundation. Whilst bolting the turbine on the foundation, the next turbine assembly will commence.
