Jan De Nul Group has signed the taking-over of the offshore jack-up crane vessel Vidar, formerly operating for the German company Hochtief. The jack-up vessel Vidar is less than two years old and was specifically built to install offshore windparks.
The large cargo deck space and payload and the lifting capacity of its crane up to 1,200 tonnes enable swift and safe installation of the heaviest foundations and other components of offshore windparks. The vessel is 140 metres long and is equipped with four legs to lift itself above the sea level for stable working without impact of the waves. The vessel can install all kinds of foundations, as well as the latest generation of wind turbines, in water depths up to 50 metres.
