Largest Jack-Up Installation Vessel Voltaire Delivered by COSCO Shipping to Jan De Nul Group

Jan De Nul’s jack-up vessel Voltaire has left the COSCO Shipping Shipyard in China and is currently heading for Dubai.

The vessel was delivered by the shipyard on December 15 and departed on December 20.

With her crane capacity of 3,000 tonnes, four immense legs of 130 meters, and capacity to lift 16,000 tonnes of useful cargo out of the water, Voltaire is the world’s tallest jack-up installation vessel. Her innovative design makes the vessel highly suitable for the installation of next-generation wind farms.

Voltaire will be showing her best for the first time in the Dogger Bank project, off the English coast. This is set to be the world’s largest offshore windfarm that will generate enough energy to power over 6 million UK homes.
