Pacific Osprey’s new upgraded crane boom is on its way to Denmark for installation

Swire Blue Ocean (SBO) has contracted Blue Water Shipping to transport Pacific Osprey’s new crane boom from NOV’s manufacturing yard to Denmark aboard SAL’s M/V Wiebke. The boom was successfully loaded onto the vessel on 21 January and left the yard on 22 January. It is expected to reach Denmark around 1 March and installation on board Pacific Osprey will commence once it has been delivered. SBO expects Pacific Osprey to be back in service by 1 May 2020.

“This is an important milestone for Swire Blue Ocean. The transportation of the crane boom to Denmark rewards months of hard work spent developing a new crane boom design with capacity for future wind turbines. We have all been looking forward to this moment and are very excited about what is coming soon,” says Kim Tribler, Head of Marine Operations, SBO.

Pacific Osprey is a 2012 built, self-elevating Windfarm Installation Vessel, originally fitted with a 1,200 MT main crane @ 31 m radius – 97 m hook height above deck – targeted for both foundation and wind turbine generator (WTG) installations.

Pacific Osprey’s new crane boom will have a simplified design focused on providing efficient WTG installations, with optimisations driven by experience. It will be equipped as follows:

  • 1,200 MT main crane @ 31 m radius – 132 m hook height above deck
  • 700 MT @ 50 m radius – 125 m hook height above deck
  • 115 m boom length – Approx. 30 m gain in main hook height

With its upgraded crane boom, Pacific Osprey will be capable of handling the next generation of WTGs, and under normal operating conditions, be capable of handling the following number of turbine sets per loadout:

  • 4 x SG 10.0-193 DD,
  • 5 x V164-10.0 MW,
  • 5 x V174-9.5 MW,
  • 3 x GE Haliade-X 12MW
