Cadeler Orders New KenzFigee Offshore Deck Crane for WIV Wind Orca

KenzFigee has signed a contract to replace the current offshore deck crane on the O-class Windfarm Installation Vessel (WIV) ‘Wind Orca’.

Cadeler has awarded KenzFigee this contract based on its decision to replace the current offshore deck crane on its self-elevating windfarm installation vessel ‘Wind Orca’ in preparation for the changing offshore wind market demands.

KenzFigee will deliver the compact and robust designed electric hydraulic driven Ram Luffing crane with a lifting capacity of 25t (SWL). The KenzFigee Ram Luffing crane is a box boom type with an installed base of more than 50 cranes world-wide. The limited number of moving parts makes this crane highly reliable and the ideal low maintenance crane for harsh offshore environments.

The crane is expected to be delivered for installation in late 2021. After testing and commissioning the Ram Luffing crane will be operational early 2022 and ready for its first assignment on board of the ‘Wind Orca’ as a further improvement of the vessel’s versatility and efficiency.

“KenzFigee is honored to be selected by Cadeler to supply this crane on one of their O-class vessels and contribute to its strategic decision to solidify their position as key supplier within the offshore wind industry. We will support Cadeler during this project and beyond to make sure this project is the first of many to come”, says Jan-Pieter Klaver, CEO of KenzFigee.

“Cadeler looks forward to installation of the deck crane on ‘Wind Orca’ and is confident KenzFigee will deliver an advanced solution meeting our operational needs. Replacement of ‘Wind Orca’s’ current deck crane is necessary to ensure the vessel is ready for future wind turbine installation projects, which require a crane with improved reach for lifting various tools and equipment on deck”, says Mikkel Gleerup, CEO of Cadeler.
