Wind Energy – Japan
Palfinger Marine has officially been commissioned to deliver 25 of its stiff boom cranes for offshore wind applications.
The recipient is Japan’s most recent large-scale offshore wind development project – the Kitakyusyu-Hibikinada Offshore Wind Farm. With the deliveries beginning in Q1 2024, Palfinger further expands its market share in the Asia-Pacific market.
The design of the stiff boom cranes with an outreach of 8 meters has been completely adapted to meet the offshore wind service crane requirements and especially the EN13852-3 standard.
The wind park, which will be located near the port of the Hibikinada, is the third commercial offshore wind farm in a row and marks yet another milestone in Palfinger’s local market presence.
Following a cooperation between Penta Ocean Construction Co., and Nippon Steel Engineering Co., the platform cranes will be delivered and installed throughout 2024.
