Offshore lifting: Buoyant business

With governments around the world increasingly turning to renewable sources of energy, the current wind farm sector is thriving. As such, a number of offshore lifting product innovations have been developed specifically for this market.
International lifting and offshore services specialist Huisman has developed a new crane series for maintenance work on offshore wind turbines. Called the Foldable Offshore Crane, Huisman says its features include, “unparalleled lifting heights and more than sufficient lifting capacity with a foldable boom resulting in less required deck space and a low own weight of the crane.” Huisman says it will need a smaller and, therefore, cheaper jack up vessel than is required with existing cranes for this application.
