KenzFigee to develop electric offshore crane

By Niamh Marriott24 November 2021

KenzFigee has signed a contract with Iv-Offshore and Energy to develop an electric hydraulic ram luffing offshore crane.

The heavy duty 3,000 type ram luffing crane is especially suited for offshore operations

The crane will be installed on a HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) offshore converter platform on a Sofia offshore wind farm, situated on Dogger Bank in the North Sea.

The heavy duty 3,000 type ram luffing crane is especially suited for harsh North Sea offshore operations. The company says that with its compact design, coupled with a limited number of moving parts, it is an ideal low maintenance offshore crane.

The crane is equipped with a 40-metre long box boom which enables personnel handling and platform lifts with safe working loads from 19 to 25 tonne.

The ram luffing crane will be built, assembled and tested at KenzFigee facility in Zaandam, the Netherlands. At the start of 2022, it will be shipped to Batam in Indonesia where Sembcorp Marine will install it on the HVDC offshore converter platform, which is currently being fabricated.

Farthest from shore

The 1,400 megawatt wind farm, consisting of 100 wind turbines, will generate enough energy to power 1.2 million UK homes and will be one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world when completed. Located 195 kilometres off the North East coastline of the UK, it will also be one of the farthest from shore.
