Jack-up vessel, Voltaire, will install 277 wind turbines across the three phases of the Dogger Bank Wind FarmThe UK’s ambitions for renewable energy take a significant stride forward as the largest jack-up vessel in the world, Voltaire, reaches the country’s shores.
Voltaire, built by the Jan De Nul Group, will undertake its inaugural assignment – the construction of the highly anticipated Dogger Bank Wind Farm.
This colossal vessel will be responsible for installing a total of 277 GE Renewable Energy Haliade-X offshore wind turbines across all three phases of the project.
Equipped with a lifting capacity surpassing 3,000 tonnes, Voltaire is designed to meet the engineering challenges posed by these gigantic turbines.
Notably, Voltaire sets a new standard as the first seaworthy installation vessel classified as an ultra-low emission vessel, boasting a cutting-edge exhaust filtering system.
