KenzFigee signed a contract to replace the current offshore deck crane on the O-class Windfarm Installation Vessel Wind Orca.
Cadeler has awarded this contract based on its decision to replace the current offshore deck crane on its self-elevating windfarm installation vessel Wind Orca in preparation for the changing offshore wind market demands.
The Dutch crane manufacturer will deliver the compact and robust designed electric hydraulic-driven Ram Luffing crane with a lifting capacity of 25tonne (SWL). The crane is a box boom type with an installed base of more than 50 cranes world-wide.
The crane is expected to be delivered for installation in late 2021. After testing and commissioning the Ram Luffing crane will be operational in early 2022 and ready for its first assignment on board the Wind Orca as a further improvement of the vessel’s versatility and efficiency.
“Replacement of Wind Orca’s current deck crane is necessary to ensure the vessel is ready for future wind turbine installation projects, which require a crane with improved reach for lifting various tools and equipment on deck,” says Mikkel Gleerup, CEO of Cadeler.
