Bokalift 2 heads off to China for crane installation

Drydocks World has recently completed the conversion project for Boskalis, turning a former drillship YAN into a crane vessel, now named Bokalift 2. After the conversion, requiring 9,000 tons of steel was completed at the yard in Dubai, the vessel is now heading off to Xiamen in China where the 4,000-ton Huisman crane will be installed. 

The former ship, now a crane vessel named BOKALIFT 2 has been converted in preparation for carrying out a variety of offshore operations. Drydocks World says it has delivered the project using detailed engineering, supply of steel, piping and electrical bulk material, construction, and installation of client issued equipment until mechanical completion.

The Bokalift 2 will be deployed for the first time at the Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farm project in Taiwan, owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and two Taiwanese life insurance companies. The project includes the transportation and installation of 62 three-legged jacket foundations and the accompanying 186 pin piles.

The vessel recently passed Singapore Strait, currently sailing in the South China Sea off Vietnam, and is expected to reach Xiamen on January 3, the shipping data shows.
