  The increasing size of wind turbine generators sets a challenge for the offshore wind installation industry. Existing jackup vessels are rapidly becoming uncompetitive because they cannot lift high enough to reach the highest parts of wind turbines. Based on a fundamentally different motion principle and an efficient structural load transfer, the Tetrahedron crane lifts higher than alternatives that can fit in the same crane footprint, offering an economically viable path for owners who want to upgrade jackups or build more cost competitive units to... ...
