MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has been chosen to supply two auxiliary offshore telescopic cranes for Van Oord’s new generation wind turbine installation vessel.
MacGregor’s scope of supply encompasses two auxiliary offshore telescopic cranes, which are used to support the cargo and load handling during the installation of wind turbines in the offshore environment, and are equipped with an anti-collision system.
The vessel is being built by Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore Ltd. The 175-meter offshore installation vessel will be purpose-built for the transport and installation of foundations and turbines at offshore wind farms. The main crane lifting capacity is more than 3,000 tonnes. Four legs, each measuring 126 meters in length, allow the vessel to be jacked up and work in waters up to 70 meters deep.
The new vessel will mainly operate to support European wind farms. The contract was booked into Cargotec’s second quarter 2022 orders received. The delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2023.
