Deme Offshore and Liftra have announced that they will join forces to develop an offshore installation methodology suitable for both bottom-fixed and floating turbines.
The Liftra crane technology will be fully integrated on board Deme’s vessels on an exclusive basis. Liftra is providing the design and engineering, based on its LT1500 Turbine Installation Crane technology, and this is combined with Deme’s engineering, operations and installation technology. The offshore turbine installation crane offers the possibility of erecting higher and heavier turbines using existing vessels. The partners will develop and integrate the technology in stages and following an extensive testing programme, the new system is expected to be operational in 2027.
