Pieter Schelte is 382 metres long and 124 metres wide. The length, in combination with the massive width, makes this vessel unique. This vessel is intended for installing and removing topsides and jackets of large offshore oil and gas platforms in a single lift. At the bow of the vessel is a slot, where topsides are lifted. The vessel is also equipped for laying large pipelines and, with her capacity, will be the largest pipelay vessel as well.
