Jan de Nul’s heavy lift vessel Les Alizés has left the CMHI Haimen Shipyard in China and is currently heading for Europe. Les Alizés is specifically designed for loading, transporting, lifting and installing offshore wind turbine foundations.
The main features are a main crane of 5,000 tons, a deck loading capacity of 61,000 tons and a deck space of 9,300 m². Les Alizés is a crane vessel for floating installation, which means that she is not dependent on the water depths and the seabed conditions. Les Alizés’ maiden voyage sets sail to Europe for her first mission in Germany: the transport and installation of 107 monopile foundations and one offshore substation topside at Ørsted’s Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farm.
