Van Oord orders ship to install 20MW offshore wind foundations and turbinesVan Oord has ordered a new offshore installation vessel. The jack-up vessel can operate on methanol and install up to 20MW wind turbines at sea. The new 175-metre offshore installation vessel will be purpose-built for the transport and installation of foundations and turbines at offshore wind farms.
 
With crane, supplied by Huisman, it can lift more than 3,000 tonnes. The vessel has four legs, each measuring 126 metres, which allow the vessel to be jacked up and work in waters up to 70 metres deep. The vessel is being built by the Yantai CIMC Raffles Shipyard in China. The design is by Knud E Hansen. The ship is expected to enter the market in 2024 and will work under the Dutch flag. Van Oord has also taken an option on a second vessel. This investment is part of a EUR 1 billion fleet investment programme over the next 5 years.
