In June 2010 Allseas awarded the contract for building Pieter Schelte, it is a 382 m long, 124 m wide dynamically positioned (DP) platform installation / decommissioning and pipe lay vessel. When built, Pieter Schelte will have a topsides lift capacity of 48,000 tons and a jacket lift capacity of 25,000 tons.
Her pipe lay tension capacity will be 2,000 t, doubling the capacity of Allseas’ Solitaire and thereby surpassing her as the world’s largest pipe lay vessel.

As the major engineering partner to the Allseas Group, Bosch Rexroth has developed and engineered the drive and control system. Pieter Schelte can lift and transport topsides of offshore platforms with a weight of up to 48,000 tons in one piece. Allseas thus considerably lowers the costs and risks for offshore assembly and disassembly.

Allseas brought a long-term partner on board: Bosch Rexroth. Rexroth possesses comprehensive experience in designing and realizing challenging drive and control solutions for offshore installations and maritime applications. An international team made of industry specialists and technology experts developed a TLS drive and control system, based on the principles as provided by Allseas. “No comparable system has ever been created before, making this an exciting task, even for our experienced engineers,” as Project Manager Ron van den Oetelaar explains the challenge for Bosch Rexroth, in particular the role of PLC.
