Wind Energy – Spreader Bar
Jan De Nul Group has awarded Huisman a contract for the delivery of a 3,500mt monopile spreader bar.
The spreader bar will support and optimise installation of offshore wind turbines. It is able to handle monopiles with the largest diameter and length currently available.
Deployed in combination with the recently delivered 3,000mt Huisman Leg Encircling Crane onboard the Voltaire and the 5,000mt Huisman Tub Mounted Crane onboard the Les Alizés, it will enable Jan De Nul Group to handle the largest monopiles in a safe and controlled manner.
Safe operations are ensured via automated sling handling of monopiles, reducing the number of personnel on deck.
The remotely controlled Monopile Spreader is powered by an onboard battery pack with an integrated charger system for different external charging supplies.
