Gusto MCSBremen-based shipping company Harren & Partner has announced that it is now technical manager of jack-up vessel Wind Lift I.

The company's offshore department, headed by Robert Fowler, will be responsible for managing the vessel starting in April. The vessel was purpose built for the offshore wind sector in 2010 at Western Shipyard in Klaipėda, Lithuania. It is owned by Ocean Breeze Energy GmbH & Co. KG.

With a length 93.86m and width 36.00m the vessel uses its dynamic positioning system to move within a wind farm without the need for tugs. The vessel lifts itself using a four legged hydraulic jacking system and is equipped with a  500t heavy offshore crane, both supplied by GustoMSC. The fully-equipped cabin block can accommodate up to 50 people.

“This state-of-the-art vessel represents an important enhancement of our fleet. It extends our scope of action to provide our customers with comprehensive, yet customised solutions,” says Heiko Felderhoff, Managing Director of Harren & Partner.

“Wind Lift I is a highly adaptable vessel. We have a first-class cooperation between the marine crew and the client. A major component exchange takes us an  average of just 16 hours to complete,”Felderhoff added.
