The telescopic leg crane
Key equipment on board is the GustoMSC Telescopic Leg Crane, offering an innovative combination of high hoisting capability for turbine installation and heavy load capability for foundation installation. The telescopic boom avoids protrusion of a very long crane boom outside the hull dimensions during transit, increasing transit conditions and manoeuvrability in ports.
The crane capacity for foundations sums up to 2,500 t at a height of 121 m, and wind turbine components can be installed at a staggering height of 161 m, with a maximum load of 1,250 t. With the right capacity at the right height this tool is future proof for the maintenance and installation of the new generation offshore WTG’s.
