Semco Maritime completes historic crane boom installation on Pacific Osprey
Swire Blue Ocean contracted Semco Maritime for the installation of a 422-tonne crane boom on windfarm Installation Vessel Pacific Osprey to expand its capacity and enable handling of the next generation of wind turbine generators. Semco Maritime delivered on-time after completing the heaviest lift ever at the port of Esbjerg.
“This has been an exciting project characterised by great collaboration with Swire Blue Ocean and a range of subcontractors with an uncompromising focus on safety and meticulous planning. We unloaded the 115-meter-long crane boom on the quayside to perform electrical installations and tests before completing a complex twin-lift with two heavy shore cranes and mounting the crane on Pacific Osprey for the final load tests,” says Senior Project Manager at Semco Maritime’s Rig Projects division, Søren Hede-Jensen.
“We are very pleased with the safe and successful upgrade of Pacific Osprey, which is now able to install next-generation wind turbines for Swire Blue Ocean’s customers. The entire team working on this assignment was very dedicated and focused on safety and collaboration related to the complex heavy-lifting task, and operations consequently went very well indeed,” says Head of Marine Operations at Swire Blue Ocean, Kim Tribler.
