Pioneering Spirit Arrives in Rotterdam

Allseas’ pipelaying vessel Pioneering Spirit, the biggest vessel in the world, has arrived in Rotterdam on Thursday.

According to Allseas, the vessel arrived at the Maasmond around midnight, from where it took it about five hours to reach the final location in the Alexiahaven.

The vessel recently completed the deep-water pipelay for Line 1 of the TurkStream offshore gas pipeline across the Black Sea.

Following the works schedule, Pioneering Spirit will continue the deep-water pipelay of Line 2 in the third quarter of 2018.

The first line of the gas pipeline is intended for the Turkish consumers, while the second line is designated for the Southern and South-Eastern Europe. Each line will have the throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

The Pioneering Spirit is 382 meters long, 124 meters wide, with a 122-meter long and 59 meter wide slot between the two hulls, where topsides are lifted using eight sets of horizontal lifting beams.
