General – Mission Equipment CSOV
SMST has been awarded a contract by Damen Shipyards for the delivery of two sets of mission equipment for the two newbuild Elevation Series CSOVs for Windcat Offshore.
By delivering a gangway (Telescopic Access Bridge L-Series) combined with Access & Cargo Tower and world’s largest 3D Motion Compensated Crane, SMST is a major contributor to the enlarged flexibility and capability of the hydrogen-powered Commissioning Service Operation Vessels, which already have been praised for their revolutionary design.
“SMST has been closely involved in the design of the vessels, which has enabled us to optimally integrate our equipment. This has resulted in the most efficient and safest logistic solution for the CSOVs, and it has also created an optimal construction process for the equipment on board,” says Menno de Jong, Sales Manager at SMST.
The SMST mission equipment that will be in operation on board the CSOVs from 2025 contains the first ever 10t 3D motion compensated crane, being the largest 3D crane worldwide. Mr De Jong elaborates: “This version from our wide range of 3D cranes offers new possibilities for offshore handling. The construction of offshore wind farms can be executed even more efficiently.”
