PTC200 DS Ring Crane during final assembly stage at Sing Da PortA joint venture between Mammoet and Giant Heavy Machinery Services has started working with Sing Da Marine Structure Corporation (SDMS), a marine engineering subsidiary of China Steel Corporation to provide assembly, transportation and load-out services for Taiwan’s first locally fabricated wind turbine jacket foundations, on site at its manufacturing facility.
Mammoet-Giant JV will be performing the assembly, transportation and load-out of the jackets, which each weigh approximately 1,200t. The PTC200-DS Ring Crane will assemble the jackets by first upending the lower jacket structure before installing both the upper structure and transition pieces at a single location. 72 axle lines of SPMT will then transport each jacket up to 1,200m from the jacket fabrication line to a storage area. Four jackets are expected to be simultaneously assembled near the PTC200-DS Ring Crane while the crane will also complete multiple heavy lifts to load-out each jacket onto the barge. The project is a joint effort between SDMS and Ørsted, with the aim to deliver jacket foundations and knowledge transference to develop Taiwan’s offshore wind supply capacity.
