FOUNDATION INSTALLATION VESSEL

HEAVY LIFT CRANE VESSEL

A crane vessel designed for cost-effective installation and decommissioning. 

To provide a crane vessel for the specific market demand, this design is developed with as key driver the balance between initial investment, operational cost, and vessel workability. 

Specifications

Length
185.00 m
Breadth
65.00 m
Depth
13.00 m
Draught
8.00 m

The main dimensions and vessel layout are optimized for the increasing demands from the offshore wind and decommissioning industry. Turbine foundations increase in size and weight, suited for deeper waters and larger turbines. The deck layout is such that it can accommodate a significant number of these structures. The philosophy on cost reduction is to aim at efficiency in the majority of the operational cycle, rather than pushing the upper limit of workability, resulting in this cost-effective solution.
