Huisman has delivered the 600mt Wind Turbine Installation Crane onboard GeoSea’s DP2 jack-up vessel Neptune. The crane was handed over to the builder of the vessel IHC Offshore and Marine BV, part of IHC Merwede, who subcontracted the crane to Huisman in 2010.

The 600mt Pedestal Crane is custom-designed for the installation of offshore wind turbines. The crane combines technical features, such as a full electric variable frequency drive system, a low overall construction weight and a small minimum operating radius. Furthermore all the major equipment, such as the hoist winches, is installed inside the enclosed crane house. The Neptune will be used for the transport and installation of offshore wind turbines and any other heavy marine offshore structures. On delivery to GeoSea early 2012, the Neptune will start her first assignment on the Thornton bank off the Belgian coast, where she will install 48 wind turbines for the second and third stages of the C-Power offshore wind farm.
