Cadeler secures transport and installation gig with undisclosed client
Cadeler has secured a €45 million deal for the transport and installation of next generation wind turbines with an undisclosed client. The installation project will be executed by one of Cadeler’s O-class vessels featuring the new and larger main crane.
The agreement is made possible through advanced discussions with the strategic partners that took place in the early stages of the process. The undisclosed project will be executed by Cadeler’s O-class installation vessel, which by the time the project is set to start, will have a main crane installed with a lifting capacity of 1600 metric tons at a radius of 40 meters.
Earlier in June, NOV has been contracted to upgrade Cadeler’s Wind Osprey vessel with a new large capacity leg crane. With a lifting capacity of 1600 metric tons at a radius of 40 meters and the main hook at 159 meters above the main deck, the new heavy lift crane offers a substantial capacity upgrade compared to the existing NOV crane with 1200 metric tons lifting capacity at a radius of 31 meters.
The crane replacement on Wind Osprey is scheduled to be initiated in Q4/2023 and will be completed in conjunction with the crane replacement on Wind Orca. The replacement is scheduled for completion in Q1/2024 and will be ready in time for the next generation of wind turbines.
