Palfinger will deliver 60 of its new PF120-4 fixed boom cranes to the Moray West Offshore Wind Farm in Scotland and one PTM12000 jetty crane to its Operations & Maintenance (O&M) base.
The Moray West offshore wind farm is located in the outer Moray Firth off Inverness. In order to lift materials and tools from the Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV) onto the Transition Piece (TP) of the wind turbines, Palfinger will deliver 60 of its PF120-4 fixed boom cranes to the Moray West offshore wind farm. The cranes are scheduled to be delivered in 2023 in cooperation with Outreach Offshore, the distributor of Palfinger Marine products in the UK. In addition to the 60 fixed boom cranes, Palfinger will supply a PTM12000 jetty crane for Buckie Harbour. The commercial port has been selected as the long-term Operations & Maintenance (O&M) base and will be used to support the construction phase of the Moray West offshore wind farm and beyond. The project is being developed by Ocean Winds, a 50-50 joint venture formed by EDP Renewables and Engie. It will consist of 60 wind turbines, each with a generating capacity of 14.7MW.
