Huisman has announced the signing of a contract with Deme for the delivery of a 2,300mt Lifting Spreader and a set of adaptive Damping Tugger Winches.
These tools will be installed onboard Deme’s Offshore Installation Vessel Orion. Huisman and Deme have worked together on the optimisation of the spreader’s design. The design enables hands-free sling handling of monopiles, controlled remotely, and powered by an exchangeable battery pack. The Lifting Spreader is designed for the installation of next generation monopiles and can be extended in order to handle 120 metre long monopiles with a diameter of up to 12 metre. Huisman will additionally deliver a set of remote operated, adaptive Damping Tugger Winches. These winches actively suppress sway motion of the monopile during lifting operations.
