“We are proud to be able to contribute to safe and efficient operations on one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms, the Sofia Offshore Wind Farm in the UK sector”, said Robert de Rijcke, Chief Commercial Officer of KenzFigee. “It’s a pleasure to be working again with Iv-Offshore & Energy on this great project. This new contract award by Iv-Offshore & Energy reflects the mutual trust and confidence between both companies, and validates the reliability of our products, particularly the Ram Luffing crane as a proven design with an installed base of over 100 cranes worldwide.”

The heavy duty 3,000 type Ram Luffing crane is especially suited for harsh North Sea offshore operations. With its compact and robust design coupled with a limited number of moving parts, it is a low maintenance offshore crane. The crane is equipped with a 40-metre long box boom which enables personnel handling and supply boat lifts of up to Hs-5m, according EN13852-1, and platform lifts with safe working loads from 19 to 25 tonne.

The 1,400 MW Sofia Offshore Wind Farm is to be sited on Dogger Bank in the North Sea, located 195 km off the North East coastline of the UK. The 100 turbines will generate enough energy to power 1.2 million UK homes and will be one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. It will also be one of the farthest from shore.
