HelWin Alpha

The HelWin beta converter platform enables providing another 690 MW of offshore wind energy to the transmission grid, using direct current technology – equalling the capacity of a mid-sized conventional power plant. The platform has been positioned over the pre-installed foundation. After positioning the legs have been stabbed on the piles through a set of LMUs. Subsequently, the platform has been jacked up to target elevation of 22m above the sea by means of a temporary, hired, jacking system. With its record setting topsides weight (mechanically completed and precommisioned) of over 12,000 tonnes and the bulky dimensions, the platform is beyond the lifting capabilities of any offshore crane available. The capacity of the jacking system was scaled to meet the lifting requirements and thus allowed installation of the complete topsides in one operation eliminating the need for multiple expensive offshore lifts and minimizing the requirements for offshore hook-up and commissioning.
