The emergence of Pieter Schelte signifies a step-change in offshore installation and decommissioning. Designed to install and decommission platform topsides of up to 48,000 t and jackets of up to 25,000 t in a single lift, it will significantly reduce the amount of offshore work associated with installation and decommissioning by moving the work onshore where it is safer for workers, better for the environment, and more cost effective.
