US Offshore Wind in Maps: Jack-Up Vessel Footprint

Are you still keeping up with our “US Offshore Wind in Maps” series?

In the past few weeks, we’ve looked at the scale of lease areas, transit lanes, and cable routes. Now, let’s drill down into some of the construction components. 

Did you know that the installation vessels, the “workhorses” of the industry, are nearly the size of a New York City block?

The hull is “jacked-up” above the water’s surface by extending four 100-meter long “legs” down the water column and planting four 200 m2 spud cans into the seafloor, each of which has a footprint similar to that of a large building. Picture that!
