Heerema Marine Contractors, a world-leading marine contractor in the international offshore oil and gas industry, has awarded Kenz Cranes with a contract for the design and production of two knuckle boom cranes for its DCV Aegir vessel.
As a trusted partner in the international offshore industry, Kenz Cranes has provided various pedestal mounted cranes and excellent after sales service for all kinds of offshore structures and support vessels for more than 50 years.
The two Kenz knuckle boom cranes will be replacement cranes for the current knuckle boom cranes on the deepwater construction vessel Aegir.
Kenz Cranes will design a 200t active heave compensated knuckle boom crane with a deep water winch suitable for 3,300m water depth and an outreach of 50m. The other knuckle boom is a 50t crane with an outreach of 42m.
Kenz Figee Group commercial director Robert de Rijcke said: "Kenz Cranes have shown again to be very competitive and innovative in the current turbulent oil and gas market. With this order, we will further strenghten our position delivering high-tech knuckle boom cranes for service providers in the oil and gas industry."
As of December 2017, the cranes will be delivered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
