The Netherlands – Dutch Vuyk Engineering has been hired by Danish Cadeler to provide engineering works for the upgrade of the Wind Orca vessel.
Cadeler has decided to install a new crane on the vessel Wind Orca and retain the option for delivery of a crane on vessel Wind Osprey.
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.
