The TFlinerXL is a larger version of the TPliner3800. The additional length offers the advantage of being able to install even the biggest monopiles that are currently being used in the industry. The vessel features active roll reduction which, combined with a motion compensated crane, gives the vessel a good operability while the vessel remains on DP. The unique hull shape of the vessel allows the roll reduction to have a constant effect over a large range of draughts. From this stable platform, monopile foundations, transition pieces as well as jacket type foundations can be installed while the vessel remains in floating condition.
With added gantry’s and winches the vessel can be deployed for the installation of jacket type foundations of up to 600t. The open deck of the vessel allows for two jackets to be carried side by side. On the aft part of the main deck there is sufficient space for piling equipment that is needed to anchor the jacket to the seabed. Larger jackets can be installed over the stern of the vessel, using the same equipment.
The TF liner XL is a versatile platform that can be configured for a number of different tasks. For instance the vessel can be configured for: cable lay, reel lay and project transport. The vessel’s basic layout with a large open deck, DP capabilities, good transit speed, favorable motion characteristics and large capacity accommodation block make it very suitable for a wide range of tasks.
