Huisman has won a contract with Havfram, a subsea and offshore wind contractor, to deliver a 3,000mt+ Leg Encircling Crane (LEC) for installation on its first Wind Turbine Installation Vessel.
The full electric LEC will have a distinctive 155-meter boom and a lifting height of almost 180 meters above deck. The plan has been adjusted in accordance with the knowledgeable engineering team at Havfram’s specifications for the installation of the turbine and foundation.
Due to the Huisman LEC’s light weight, dependability, excellent positioning accuracy, and high energy efficiency, less emissions are produced during the installation of ever-larger offshore wind turbines.
The crane has a compact tail swing that maximizes deck area. The slew bearing’s design carries on the notion of dependability and serviceability. Easy inspection and maintenance are guaranteed by the many parts of construction that Huisman devised internally.
Recently, design work on this crane began at the Huisman facility in Schiedam, Netherlands. In Zhangzhou, China, at Huisman’s production site, the crane will be made.
