Pacific Ospreys new boom transported to DenmarkSwire Blue Ocean (SBO) has contracted Blue Water Shipping to transport Pacific Osprey’s new crane boom from NOV’s manufacturing yard to Denmark aboard SAL’s M/V Wiebke. The boom was loaded onto the vessel on 21 January and left the yard on 22 January. It is expected to reach Denmark around 1 March and installation on board Pacific Osprey will commence once it has been delivered. SBO expects Pacific Osprey to be back in service by 1 May 2020.
Pacific Osprey is a 2012 built, self-elevating Windfarm Installation Vessel. Pacific Osprey’s new crane boom will have a simplified design focused on providing efficient WTG installations. It will be equipped as follows:

  • 700 MT @ 50 m radius – 125 m hook height above deck

  • 4 x SG 10.0-193 DD,
  • 5 x V164-10.0 MW,
