Huisman has been hired by CSBC Corporation to deliver a 4,000mt Offshore Mast Crane (OMC) to be installed on heavy lift vessel Green Jade.
The crane will be built at the production facility of Huisman in China and is scheduled for delivery in 2022 for deployment by joint venture CSBC-DEME Wind Energy (CDWE) in the Taiwanese offshore wind market.
The crane will be installed on CDWE’s new DP3 heavy lift and installation vessel to be built in Taiwan, Green Jade, that will be deployed for both the Hai Long Offshore Wind Project and at Zhong Neng for Zhong Neng Wind Power Corporation Preparatory Office.
With a lifting capacity of 4,000mt at 125m above deck, and outfitted with specific auxiliary systems for handling tall structures, the OMC will enable Green Jade to install the next generation of foundations and giant wind turbines in the most effective way. The crane is prepared for a super fly jib with significant lifting capacity and a whiphoist which allows lifting of smaller components up to a height of 185 meters above deck.
In addition to the main crane, Huisman will deliver a 65mt Knuckleboom Crane for general lifting purposes. Both cranes will be installed and commissioned at the CSBC shipyard.
“We are very pleased with the confidence shown in Huisman by awarding us this contract. We are commited to deliver value adding assets to CBSC and its partners for the installation of future generation offshore wind turbines.”Anne de Groot, project director at Huisman.
