January 2017: Pipelayers with a view

Subsea pipeline-bundles

On the Scottish shore near the town of Wick, 5 Liebherr pipelayers are at work at a unique subsea pipeline-bundle fabrication yard.

The subsea pipelines that are constructed here are specially engineered, complex bundles up to 56 inch diameter, with lengths that vary from 240 meter to an incredible 7.7 km and weights reaching over an amazing 10,000 tonnes. The pipe bundle is manufactured on a special railway network that is used to eventually shift the pipeline bundle down to the sea. The finished pipe bundle is welded to a towhead and then a tug pulls the massive pipeline along the railway line to launch it into the North Sea.

great equipment & gorgeous views

The Liebherr pipelayers on the Wick yard provide the Scottish operator’s with all the Liebherr and Maats advantages (hight lifting forces, stability, maneuverability, performance, reliability & economy to name some, click here for more)

But besides being functional and safe, the unobstructed cabin-views of the 5 Liebherr pipelayers are a nice extra for the operators working in the Scottish Highlands, as it allows them to (in between tasks) optimally enjoy the stunningly gorgeous landscapes that surround the Wick jobsite.

(So we’d like to hereby emphasize that Liebherr & Maats sidebooms are not only the strongest and safest sidebooms, but also the most fun to work with ;)
