Wind Energy – LEC
Huisman’s 2,200mt Leg Encircling Crane is on its way to the Keppel AmFELS shipyard in Brownsville, Texas, USA, which is building the WTIV for Dominion Energy.
Here it will be fitted on the wind turbine installation vessel Charybdis which will be the first Jones Act compliant installation vessel in the USA.
Already in 2021, the WTIV secured its first job as Ørsted and Eversource entered into an agreement with Dominion Energy to charter Charybdis for the construction of their Revolution Wind and Sunrise Wind offshore wind farms in the US Northeast.
Dominion Energy announced it had selected Huisman to deliver the crane for the WTIV in September 2020, a couple of months before Keppel AmFELS laid the keel for the new vessel at its shipyard in Brownsville, Texas.
