Huisman China installed, commissioned and tested the 3,000mt offshore mast crane on board Boskalis’ Bokalift 1 within 27 days.
The Bokalift 1 crane vessel was converted by Boskalis from a semi-submersible heavy lift vessel to a self-propelled DP2 crane vessel.
The main focus of the vessel will be the installation of jackets, topsides and offshore wind foundations as well as decommissioning projects.
The Bokalift 1 has left the Huisman China quayside on December 8, 2017 to set sail to the Netherlands.
The vessel can accommodate 150 persons and will have a helicopter deck available for offshore transfers. Delivery is expected at the beginning of 2018.
A sister vessel is also scheduled for conversion into a 3,000 ton crane vessel.
