Vuyk supports Cadeler S/A, Wind Orca
These new cranes will put Cadeler at the forefront of the marketLast updated 7 months ago
Vuyk Engineering Rotterdam has been contracted by Danish based Cadeler for the engineering works supporting the upgrade of the Wind Orca. The upgrade of this installation vessel will strengthen the leading position of Cadeler in the offshore wind turbine installation market.
The vessel will be upgraded with a new 1600 metric tons leg encircling crane, delivered by NOV. This increased lifting capacity empowers the Wind Orca for future offshore wind campaigns, making it capable of installing next generation offshore wind turbines.
Vuyk will execute the engineering works on the integration of the new crane, which includes the structural analysis of the legs, jacking system and vessel hull. Also, the boom rest tower will be replaced by a new designed structure which fits the new crane boom.
