|OOS International B.V. has released some impressive artist renderings of a massive lift being performed by two of their mammoth semi-submersible heavy lift vessels, the OOS Walcheren and the OOS Serooskerke.
Both of these industry leading vessels are equipped with six Thrustmaster 4MW underwater mountable, mechanical L-drive azimuthing thrusters, model TH5000ML-UM. The six azimuthing thrusters work together round the clock to provide dynamic positioning (DP) capability to each of the vessels, holding the vessels in place in the ever changing ocean environment while performing highly precise and intense lifting operations.
Driven by market demands OOS International continues to develop solutions for lifting large, odd shaped structures weighing over 4400t. The unique availability of four identical cranes on board the
OOS Serooskerke and OOS Walcheren provide the required capacity and flexibility to perform these lifts.
The OOS Serooskerke and OOS Walcheren are identical sister semi-submersible crane vessels which, due to the unique hull design, are characterized by excellent motion behavior. Each vessel is equipped with a state-of-the-art Dynamic Positioning System and two high capacity Offshore Mast Cranes. Together these characteristics make the OOS Serooskerke and OOS Walcheren the ideal vessel combination to perform parallel lifting operations up to a theoretical 8800t.
