Installation of transition pieces from floating vessels can be challenging. For the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm project off the UK coast, Jumbo Offshore therefore included Cranemaster® for the installation of transition pieces.
Two new Cranemaster® units with SWL of 400 metric tons and 2,5 meter stroke was designed for this project. To limit the lifting height above the ship deck, Lock & Release functionality was also included.
The Cranemaster® units was mainly used to reduce the crane wire tension and to ensure a safe landing of the transition pieces onto the piles offshore.
