RWE contracted Scaldis for the lift-off, transport and set down of the 800 tons Nordsee Ost substation jacket.

Rambiz lifted the jacket from the quayside in Wilhelmshaven, Germany and secured it in the vessel's crane hook for transport to the offshore site, a distance of approx. 68NM.

Exactly one year after HLV Rambiz successfully completed the installation of the Nordsee Ost substation jacket, the vessel returned to install the Nordsee Ost topside.

RWE contracted Scaldis for the transportation and installation of the 2000 tons transformer station.

The topside was transported on a barge from Bladt Industries fabrication yard in Aalborg to the Nordsee Ost field, 390NM away in the German Bight.

12 hours after the barge arrived in the field, HLV Rambiz lifted and installed the topside.
