Lift Crane on vessel Sea Installer

Scaldis is proud to have contributed to the crane upgrade of DEME’s jack-up vessel ‘Sea Installer’.

Scaldis was contracted for the installation of the new 1600t Huisman leg encircling crane for which the HLV “Gulliver” was mobilized to Rotterdam.

The project consisted of 2 phases: in the first phase, the crane was picked up at Huisman yard in Schiedam and put on a barge for further transport to the Maasvlakte.

The second phase comprised the lift and installation on Sea Installer’s new pedestal. Both phases required extreme levels of accuracy, because of various limitations and restrictions, but thanks to the highly professional crew, all operations were executed successfully within the foreseen timeframe.

The lifting operations took place at the Aker Solutions yard in Stord and have resulted in another eye catcher to Scaldis’ already extensive track record in Norwegian waters.
