DUBAI, UAE – Ørsted Taiwan has selected Mammoet-Giant Taiwan, a joint venture between Mammoet, the engineered heavy lifting and transport specialist, and Taiwanese Giant Heavy Machinery Services, to provide essential support for the 920 MW Greater Changhua 2b and 4 offshore wind farms in Taiwan.  

The joint venture will provide marshalling and lifting services for 66 suction bucket jackets. To handle the quayside operations, Mammoet says that it will provide its 5,000-ton capacity SK 350 ring crane.

Operating from a single location, the SK350 will lift the 2,500t suction bucket jackets directly from deck carriers to the quayside and after temporary storage on site, onto deck carriers ferrying the jackets to the installation vessel in the field. This methodology will eliminate the need for vessel repositioning during offloading and loading operations, company officials say.
