Last week, Huisman Schiedam was awarded a contract by Jan De Nul Group for the delivery of the most advanced monopile gripper to date.
The monopile gripper, which has a modular, tailor made design to allow use on a wide range of projects, will be used for the installation of monopoles. The delivery is planned for Q2 2019 after which installation will take place on wind turbine installation vessel ‘Vole au vent’.
The Huisman gripper is unique in its capacity as well as versatility to accommodate usage in existing projects and future projects of which the specifications are yet to be determined. This flexibility makes the gripper a unique piece of mission equipment.
