Happy Sky delivers Wind Orca’s new 1,600 mt crane
BigLift Shipping’s Happy Sky was just one of the pieces in the puzzle called the upgrade of Wind Orca’s crane. The vessel loaded the 1,600 mt crane in South Korea and has now delivered it to Schiedam, Netherlands, where it will be installed on Cadeler’s Wind Turbine Installation Vessel (WTIV).
The installation will be completed at the Mammoet quayside in Schiedam. In preparation for the job, Mammoet has changed the Rotterdam skyline by erecting its PTC210-DS ring crane in Rotterdam, which is one of the largest cranes in their fleet.
Before their journey to Schiedam, the crane components underwent rigorous testing at GustoMSC’s production facility in Korea.
Upon arrival, the crew of the Happy Sky utilized the vessel’s own cranes to offload the different crane components. The Happy Sky is now making her way back to NOV Korea to pick up the crane components for Wind Osprey. GustoMSC added that the entire operation has been completed in partnership with BigLift Shipping, deugro and Mammoet.
The focus now shifts to the next step of the project, which is preparation for the removal of the existing crane, making way for the new 1,600 mt leg crane.
