Sea Installer Undergoing Crane Replacement, Next Stop USA
DEME’s wind farm installation vessel, Sea Installer, is currently at the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam being fitted with a new and upgraded main crane.
Heavy lift vessel Gulliver has lifted the 1,600t Huisman crane onto Sea Installer at the Maasvlakte.
”Marking an important moment in DEME’s history, ‘Sea Installer’ will be one of the first vessels in our fleet to work in the US market,” DEME said in a social media post.
DEME Offshore US is in charge of the installation of offshore wind turbine foundations at the Vineyard Wind 1 project in Massachusetts, the first commercial-scale offshore wind project in the USA.
The upgraded Sea Installer will be deployed for the first time at the 800 MW Vineyard Wind 1.
