OHT’s new build vessel Alfa Lift has been floated-out from its dry dock at China Merchants Heavy Industry (CMHI) shipyard in Jiangsu, China. The heavy offshore wind installation vessel was launched Sunday 28h February.
The vessel will now be moored whilst work continues on the steel and internal fit-out, including the mechanical completion of systems. Meanwhile, key elements of Alfa Lift’s crane components have been completed in Rostock, Germany. The heavy lift crane’s slewing column and the A-frame are scheduled to leave Rostock in early March and will arrive in China in April where they will be installed. Alfa Lift is on schedule for delivery at the end of this year or early 2022.
