The vessel’s crane had an accident in August 2018 and a new boom is scheduled to be installed and the vessel to be back working in May 2020.
Pacific Osprey’s new crane boom will have a simplified design focused on providing efficient WTG installations, with optimisations driven by the experience. It will be equipped as follows:
- 1,200 MT main crane @ 31 m radius – 132 m hook height above deck
- 700 MT @ 50 m radius – 125 m hook height above deck
- 115 m boom length – Approx. 30 m gain in main hook height
With its upgraded crane boom, Pacific Osprey will be capable of handling the next generation of WTGs, and under normal operating conditions, be capable of handling the following number of turbine sets per loadout:
- 4 x SG 10.0-193 DD,
- 5 x V164-10.0 MW,
- 5 x V174-9.5 MW,
- 3 x GE Haliade-X 12MW
