Each ‘Pearl’ is designed and constructed in close cooperation with experienced offshore heavy-lift operators such as Dockwise, OHT or COSCO to ensure safe transportation of the structure from the west coast of Norway to its final destination.
Special strong points for cargo securing during open sea transport by heavy-lift vessel as well as for site safe mooring are readily integrated in the hotel’s concrete structure.
A heavy-lift vessel will be ballasted to a semisubmerged draught before the ‘Pearl’ is carefully maneuvered into a pre-defined position above vessel’s cargo deck.
The heavy-lift vessel will de-ballast and ultimately lift the structure (approximately 60.000t) out of the water.
At its final destination the reverse operation will take place before local tugs tow the ‘Pearl’ to its operation site.
