ZPMC Signs Wind Farm Installation Vessel Deal

Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries (ZPMC) has signed a contract with CCCC Third Harbor Engineering for the construction of China’s most advanced wind farm installation vessel.

Ilustration: ZPMC 800t offshore wind installation vessel

The vessel with a 1000-ton capacity will be equipped with the latest jack up system developed by ZPMC.

It will feature a hydraulic lifting system that uses cylindrical legs enabling it to work in water depths of up to 40 meters.

Compared with conventional rack and pinion lift system, the new system lasts longer and is highly reliable, which makes it suitable for frequent lifting of installation vessels and platform.

In addition, ZPMC R&D team developed a second-generation hydraulic pile gripper to better cope with offshore operation conditions, thus improving performance in piling precision.

ZPMC has long been involved in the field of wind power equipment. It offers an 800-ton offshore wind farm installation vessel and platform.
