Pioneering Spirit is the largest construction vessel in the world! It is 382 metres in length, has a breadth of 124 metres, a depth of 30 metres and a displacement of 365,000 Tonnes (Transit).
On board there is a variety of equipment, and Metreel designed and manufactured multiple bespoke Met-Trak® drag chains for use on deck equipment for carrying the vital services required for the massive lifting devices installed.
These drag chains carry a collection of special hoses and electrical cables which provide power, control and instrumentation requirements on the Port & Starboard lifting beam ‘fingers’ mounted on the vessel.
Included in Metreel supply were specially developed low expansion hose assemblies.
