Nordic Orders Giant Crane Vessel From Singapore

NORDIC Heavy Lift subsidiary Avonway has ordered a crane vessel with a record 5,000 ton single mast lifting capacity from Singapore’s Sembawang Shipyard for 2010 delivery.
Sea of Solutions, part of the Offshore Ship Designers Group was responsible for both the concept and basic design of this monohull vessel, which has the largest single mast crane ever installed on a vessel. Huisman-Itrec designed and will construct the 5,000 ton crane. The crane vessel is scheduled to enter service in March 2010.
“The design has many innovations but what catches the eye is the enormous single mast crane, reaching approximately 150 metres above the deck when topped up. It will be the largest single mast crane yet built. Until now the largest crane was designed to lift 3000 ton for the Sapura 3000, also a combined Sea of Solutions / Huisman project currently under construction,” said Sea of Solutions
