Every Scaldis project faces one challenge or another. When lifting the Bligh Bank transformer station (1000 tonne) , the challenge wasn’t the weight, the position of the centre of gravity or limiting clearances. Instead it was the preparation, approval and execution of an anchor lay-out in a live wind farm field. For every anchor wire deployed by the Rambiz, Scaldis had to guarantee sufficient clearance for crossing the different infield cables and export cable. To safely achieve this, we used a four-point mooring system with four midline buoys, two floatable mooring ropes and two pre-laid anchors.
