SEP ‘Neptune’ in Oostende.

Oostende, Belgium May 4 2012 13.00 pm
In Oostende I had the opportunity to sail with the (dynamic positioning) self-elevating heavy-lift jack-up┬ávessel ‘Neptune’. The vessel is equipped with a dedicated 600-tonne crane that is fully integrated into the hull. The Neptune is used for the transport and installation of offshore windturbines and any other heavy marime structures. The hull performs the installation of the 48 wind turbines for the second and third stages of the C-Power offshore wind farm on the Thornton Bank off the Belgian coast. The pilots mr. Duquet and mr. Van Laere are manoeuvring the 60-metre long and 38-metre wide vessel. It was very impressive.
