The Spreader Bar will support and optimise the installation of offshore wind turbines since it is able to handle monopiles with the largest diameter and length currently available, according to the press release.

Deployed in combination with the recently delivered 3,000mt Huisman Leg Encircling Crane onboard the Voltaire and the 5,000mt Huisman Tub Mounted Crane onboard the Les Alizés, it will enable Jan De Nul Group to handle the largest monopiles in a safe and controlled manner, said Huisman.

Safe operations are ensured via automated sling handling of monopiles, reducing the number of personnel on deck.

The remotely controlled Monopile Spreader is powered by an on-board battery pack with an integrated charger system for different external charging supplies.

Today, Jan De Nul Group signed an agreement with RWE for the long-term chartering of its two next-generation installation vessels for future offshore wind foundation and turbine construction.

Under the agreement, the vessels, Les Alizés and Voltaire, could be used at RWE’s current and future offshore construction projects, and, if needed, to run maintenance campaigns at its existing offshore wind farm portfolio.
