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.
