Engineering and construction firm Sarens has transported and lifted an offshore wind farm jacket cluster in Methil, Scotland.
The 26 jacket substructures were delivered to the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm in the North Sea and weighed more than 1.000 tonnes. Sarens utilized a Demag CC9800, Demag CC8800-1 BB, two Demag CC2800-1, two LR1160, LTR1200 and two LTR1100 cranes as well as various telescopic/lattice boom cranes for the operation.
The firm also recently reported a new contract for transportation work related to the expansion of the Port of Kingston. The project was subcontracted by VINCI Construction Grands Projects and includes installation of a hydraulic mat for battage, an operation that will continue through the end of 2017.
“The most crucial part of the operation has been adapting the hydraulic mat to the cranes in order to perform the pile driving at the Kingston container terminal, which Sarens has been doing since March of this year,” a spokesperson for Sarens said.
Headquartered in Belgium, The Sarens Group provides services, engineering, procurement and construction services for heavy-lift projects worldwide via a network of more than 100 subsidiaries in 54 countries.
