4000 ton crane vessel conversion

To strengthen position in renewables, Royal Boskalis decided to succeed the Bokalift 1 project with the conversion of crane vessel Bokalift 2.

Bokalift 2 was originally built as drilling vessel, and was found to be a perfect starting point for a crane vessel conversion.The conversion scope includes the fabrication and installation of steel sponsons on both sides of the vessel to increase the stability of the vessel and the installation of a new work deck. A 4000 ton crane will be installed on the vessel , with the capacity of lifting structures more than 100 meters high.

Crane Vessel Conversion

The vessel is converted at the shipyard Drydocks World in Dubai. After that the Bokalift 2 will be deployed for the first time at the Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farm project in Taiwan. The project includes the transportation and installation of 62 three-legged jacket foundations and the accompanying 186 pin piles.
