GustoMSC, Mammoet and Cadeler complete Wind Osprey Crane Installation

The installation phase of the 1600 mt leg crane on board Cadeler’s installation vessel Wind Osprey has been completed. In a successful operation, the final piece of the crane, the boom, was installed.

The milestone follows the completion of the crane upgrade for Cadeler’s installation vessel Wind Orca earlier this month. It also marks the last major lift of Mammoets PTC210-DS ring crane for this remodification project.

The installation of the 1600 mt leg crane is part of of the crane upgrade on both vessels. The new leg cranes have a 1600 metric tons lifting capacity at a 40-meter radius, with the main hook reaching 159 meters above the main deck. The cranes will be fully electric driven, reducing the environmental footprint. They represent a substantial upgrade compared to the former 1200 metric tons NOV cranes with
a 31-meter radius onboard both vessels.

The removal of the former cranes and the installation of the new cranes was a collaboration between GustoMSC, Mammoet and Cadeler and took place at the Mammoet quayside in Schiedam.

Both Wind Orca and Wind Osprey are now ready for the next project phase: reeving the wire ropes and commissioning the cranes. Soon, these vessels will be able to install the next generation offshore wind turbines.
