Pure play offshore wind company, Havrfram, has kicked off the construction of its second Wind Turbine Installation (WTI) Jack-Up vessel, the Norse Wind. It is the second vessel that the company now has under construction at Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore shipyard in Yantai, China.

The keel laying is right on time with the initial schedule, the company said. Norse Wind is the first optional vessel in the existing shipbuilding contract with CIMC Raffles, and the vessel design will be similar to the first GustoMSC NG20000X Jack-Up vessel currently under construction. The option was exercised by Havfram in April last year.

The latest battery hybrid drive train technology is incorporated in the design to significantly reduce carbon emissions per installed megawatts (MW) of offshore wind capacity. Delivery is expected late in the fourth quarter of 2025.

The NG20000X vessel has the capability of installing offshore wind turbines with a rotor diameter of more than 300 meters, as well as XXL monopiles weighing up to 3,000 tons at water depths of up to 70 meters. Capacities have been optimised for high variable deck load and the extreme lift heights expected over the next decade. The crane has a lifting capacity of 3,250 tons.
