NOV has been contracted by Cadeler to upgrade the Wind Osprey vessel with a new, large capacity leg crane. The heavy lift crane for Wind Osprey has the same specifications as its sister crane on Wind Orca for which NOV received the order in 2020.
With a lifting capacity of 1600 metric tons at a radius of 40 meters and the main hook at 159 meters above the main deck, the new heavy lift crane offers a capacity upgrade compared to the existing NOV crane with 1200 metric tons lifting capacity at a radius of 31 meters. The crane replacement on Wind Osprey is scheduled to be initiated in Q4/2023 and will be completed in conjunction with the crane replacement on Wind Orca. The replacement is scheduled for completion in Q1/2024.
