Cadeler PRCosco has awarded Huisman the contract for a 3,000+mt leg encircling crane and a 40mt pedestal-mounted crane for Cadeler’s latest A-Class vessel. This vessel will be capable of installing large foundation dimensions anticipated in the offshore wind industry.

For the A-Class jack-up vessel Wind Ally, Huisman has been awarded a contract by Cadeler to deliver a monopile storage and upending system. Huisman will also deliver the monopile gripper and main crane and auxiliary crane for this vessel. The monopile storage system is designed to maximise monopile storage on the vessel, allowing Cadeler to transport up to five monopiles, each up to 12.5 metres in diameter, in one trip. It features adjustable storage cradles that accommodate various monopile diameters and can be height-adjusted to keep them level with the vessel. The upending frame supports monopiles ranging from 80 to 120 metres in length. Features include a crane automation mode that aids in maintaining the monopile's position and retainers that secure the monopile during upending.

Both orders will be built at Huisman’s production facility in Zhangzhou, China.
