Crane mobilisation, disassembly and lifting

"The present floating wind component exchange solutions are too costly in terms of assets required, downtime of the turbine and available weather windows. We believe the Floating Maintenance Solution will be a game-changer in the market and can enable the industrialisation of floating offshore wind."


- Sofie Olsen Jebsen, CEO of Fred. Olsen 1848

State-of-the-art maintenance crane engineered and developed by Huisman featuring:

  • An expandable main boom and a foldable knuckle boom integrated in a compact self-supporting setup, to be transported safely and efficiently.
  • A unique quick connection system, allowing the crane to be deployed in multiple lightweight modules, and such that it can be quickly deployed on any floating foundation prepared for this setup.
  • An all-electric drive system, resulting in high positioning accuracy, low energy use, reduced maintenance, and high reliability.
  • A dedicated energy storage system, allowing the crane’s power supply to come from the turbine’s auxiliary circuits, yet having sufficient energy available for crane operations.
  • Well-known crane technology.
  • Well-known lifting operation.
  • The crane is capable of lifting components up to 150m above the foundation level. Larger versions can be made available when turbines would grow in the future.
