Huisman has announced the award of a contract with Fred. Olsen Windcarrier for delivery of another 1,600mt Leg Encircling Crane (LEC) to be installed on jack-up offshore wind turbine installation vessel Brave Tern.

The 1,600mt LEC will be outfitted with a unique 140m boom and has a lifting height of 165m above deck. With its upgraded cranes, the vessels of Fred. Olsen Windcarrier will be capable of installing larger foundations and handling next generation turbines.
