AT ACTEON, WE APPLY DECADES OF EXPERIENCE TO PROVIDE FOUNDATIONS, FLEXIBLES AND HIGH-VOLTAGE ELECTRIFICATION SERVICES FOR MARINE ENERGY ASSETS

Our capabilities include geotechnical engineering; impact and non-impact pile installations; back-deck services; specialist lifting for renewables; a drive–drill–drive solution for extra-large (XL) monopiles; advanced grouting solutions; and comprehensive high-voltage cable services.

We reduce project footprints and carbon emissions by optimising the use of deck space, offshore personnel and equipment. By focusing on logistics to avoid double handling and maximise vessel utilisation, we help to increase efficiency and decrease costs. Our noise mitigation and spoil-handling systems reduce the environmental impact of our work.

Real-time data capture from our equipment helps us to enhance operations and maintain high levels of performance. Remote monitoring of our offshore assets improves maintenance planning and wear prevention, which helps us to maximise equipment uptime and meet project deadlines.

THE BENEFITS OF HOW WE WORK

  • WE INSTALL FOUNDATIONS IN CHALLENGING CONDITIONS WE INSTALL FOUNDATIONS IN CHALLENGING CONDITIONS

    Our unique deep-water hammer system is equipped for use in ultradeep water and our drive–drill-drive installation method alleviates installation risks in hard soil.

  • WE MINIMISE FOUNDATION AND CABLE INSTALLATION COSTS WE MINIMISE FOUNDATION AND CABLE INSTALLATION COSTS

    Acteon equipment is built to take up less space, be maintained easily and deliver quick operations. We challenge specifications and optimise construction processes through early engagement, in-house logistics and localised resources.

  • WE OPTIMISE DECK SPACE AND STREAMLINE OPERATIONS WE OPTIMISE DECK SPACE AND STREAMLINE OPERATIONS

    We use multi-skilled technicians to reduce POB. Sharing of common equipment and integration with vessel equipment eliminates duplication, whilst a focus on logistics avoids double handling.

Decades of experience in global foundations and cables projects means Acteon’s expertise is unrivalled. Explore some of our most recent case studies below.

Installation of 72 monopiles on Kriegers Flak windfarm in record time

Installation of 72 monopiles on Kriegers Flak windfarm in record time

The monopile foundation installation is one of the key elements of an offshore wind farm construction project, and MENCK, an Acteon company was contracted to provide their market leading MHU3500S hammer and associated services to drive coated monopiles with 6m diameter.

DEME saves critical vessel time with grouting solution

DEME saves critical vessel time with grouting solution

With a 487 MW capacity, SeaMade is the largest offshore wind farm in Belgium and will feature 58 Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbines. DEME needed high performance grout material to be installed in the MP/TP skirt on each monopile.

Wikinger project Baltic Sea (Germany)

Wikinger project Baltic Sea (Germany)

LDD’s PPT is being used to pre-install foundation piles into the seabed, prior to the placement and grouting of the four-legged jacket foundation structures by means of the Boskalis vessel named Giant 7. The contract is based on a collaborative approach and utilises the strengths and experience of the project team from OWF and LDD to meet the challenging schedule and installation tolerance requirements on the project.
