Heavy lift crane vessel

Concept design for offshore wind and decommissioning market

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



  • Designed for the next generation wind turbine foundations;
  • Compact vessel, with efficient power system;
  • Crane with large deck coverage at maximum capacity;
  • Minimized handling operations on cargo deck.
