Construction, Wind Installation, and Field Lifecycle

Originated from GustoMSC’s successful crane vessel design, the Ensis crane vessel has been specifically designed for the offshore wind turbine installation market. Optimized for the installation of large monopiles, its multi-purpose nature also enhances the installation of jacket-type foundations and a wide range of activities in the offshore construction market in general.

This powerful workhorse is equipped with a heavy-duty crane with a high lifting capacity and large outreach, enhanced by the offset crane. The cargo holds provide sufficient space for monopiles, jackets, and auxiliary equipment. When covered with pontoon decks a large multi-purpose working deck is provided. Both a robust dynamic positioning system and an optional mooring system are provided.

High workability and good seakeeping are provided by the ship-shaped hull allowing continuous operations and serial installation. Reduced resistance and IMO MARPOL Tier IV readiness reduce the environmental footprint.
