Palfinger was selected as the preferred supplier for 71 of its PF14000-4.5 LDB fixed boom cranes for the Fécamp offshore wind farm which will be located between 13 and 20+ km off the Normandy coast, France.
These will lift materials and tools from the supply vessel onto the laydown area of the transition deck during the installation and commissioning of the wind turbines. Furthermore, the cranes will be used during routine inspection and service work throughout the turbines' operational life. In addition to the 71 fixed boom davits, Palfinger will deliver two PTM600-20m telescopic boom cranes to the offshore wind farm's operations and maintenance (O&M) base for loading and unloading materials and equipment to and from Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs). The offshore wind farm itself is expected to commence operations in 2023.
