ICE has recently performed modification design work for its long-standing Norwegian client Fred. Olsen Windcarrier for the “Brave Tern” – one of its Gusto 9000 type jack-up wind turbine installation vessels.

The work performed included:

  • Detail design and fabrication for the upgraded spud cans as the loads were significantly increased once the vessel was upgraded to handle next generation turbines and to install larger foundations.
  • Developing the AVEVA Marine model for equipment and pipe routing of BWT system and producing the piping fabrication info, mainly for the long lead items. Upgrading the ballast system diagram in order for the Client to get Class approval of the new retrofitted system.

ICE was earlier responsible for completing Class drawings and doing the full detail design for Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s two Gusto 9000 jack-up vessels, as well as for a different type of WTI vessels built for another operator, thus acting as the de facto design office for the builder, Lamprell Energy.

ICE is now also engaged to undertake plan approval for a much larger WTI vessel being built in Asia for another client, thus further strengthening the ICE Group’s experience in the offshore wind market.
