Pioneering Spirit (formerly Pieter Schelte) is a dynamically positioned vessel for single-lift installation and removal of large offshore oil and gas platforms, and the installation of oil and gas pipelines.
Inspired by the offshore heavy lifting pioneer Pieter Schelte Heerema (1908–81) and designed entirely in-house.
Pioneering Spirit represents the epitome of Allseas engineering and innovation and marks a new era in the heavy lifting industry.
Pioneering Spirit can sail under her own power at a high transit speed, making her suitable for worldwide use.
Operating on full dynamic positioning, she can work accurately in any water depth, while her light ice class will extend the periods in which she can operate in polar regions.
