Chinese offshore shipping company Cosco Shipping (Quidong) has ordered two 2,000 tonne Huisman leg encircling cranes
Installed on two new Cadeler X-class vessels, the cranes feature 155 metre main booms which offer above deck hook heights of up to 180.5 metres. The booms can also be upgraded to 175 metres to offer maximum hook heights of just over 200 metres.
Produced at Husiman’s production facility in Zhangzhou, China, they will be installed on the vessels at Cosco’s shipyard in Qidong. Once commissioned, the new cranes will be used to install offshore foundations and the ‘next generation’ of wind turbines.
