Fabrication and mobilisation of Topside Sea Fastening Components
E.on Climate and Renewables / Rampion Offshore Wind contracted MCC to fabricate and mobilise the Topside Sea fastening for both MPI Adventure and MPI Discovery.
The spread for each vessel consisted of circa 450t of grillage structures, to enable the safe transportation of Towers, Nacelles and Turbine Blades from the manufacturer in Europe to the Installation site off the south coast of England,
Due to the very stringent tolerance requirements of the turbine manufacturer, the mating faces of the grillages for both the Towers and the Nacelles had a requirement to be machined.
This process was completed In-House prior to mobilisation of the structures onto the installation vessels.
All of the structures were shipped from our fabrication hall to the vessels as completed structures, inclusive of all access requirements, ensuring that mobilisation was completed in optimum timescales.
Both vessels were also equipped with new removeable boat landing structures and hull attachments during mobilisation.
