The world’s largest construction vessel – Pioneering Spirit

Pioneering Spirit (previously named Pieter Schelte) is the world’s largest construction vessel, designed for the single-lift installation and removal of large oil and gas platforms and the installation of record-weight pipelines.

Designed entirely in-house by Swiss-based Allseas Group, the 382 m long, 124 m wide vessel was built in South Korea by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (2011–14) at a cost of €2.6 billion (US$3 billion), and commenced offshore operations in August 2016.

Pioneering Spirit set a world offshore lifting record of 13,500 t with her first commercial lift, removal of the Repsol-operated Yme mobile offshore production unit (MOPU) in the Norwegian North Sea, on August 22, 2016
