The former ship, now a crane vessel named BOKALIFT 2, has been converted in preparation for carrying out a variety of offshore operations. Its maiden project will be the transport and installation of wind turbine foundations off the coast of Taiwan.
The vessel conversion used 9,000T of steel, and features a 4,000T crane that will be installed in China. The project was delivered using detailed engineering, supply of steel, piping and electrical bulk material, construction, and installation of client issued equipment until mechanical completion.
Drydocks World is committed to support its clients towards energy transition.
Capt. Rado Antolovic PhD CEO of Drydocks World said: “Boskalis has been a fantastic client to us at Drydocks World and we thank them for the opportunity to deliver this critical project. We are proud of our milestone achievements and in our ability to mobilise our team to deliver this project, with 5,600,00 LTI Free man-hours. The work, which we have carried out, equips the vessel with enhanced performance and operational efficiency. Drydocks World is a specialist in offshore conversion, and we are very pleased to be extending our expertise to a project that will contribute to renewable energy development.”
