PALFINGER has secured a contract to deliver cranes for offshore platforms to be installed on the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm.

Located 89 km off the Yorkshire coast, Ørsted’s
Hornsea Two project will surpass its predecessor, Hornsea One, and become the world's largest offshore wind farm once complete in 2022. Covering an area larger than four times the size of Manchester, featuring 165 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW SG 8.0-167 DD turbines, it will be able to generate 1.4 GW of clean energy.

PALFINGER will equip the project's offshore substation with one telescopic crane (DKT400), two davit cranes (PF17000) and its reactive compensation station with one stiff-boom crane (PSM400) and two davit cranes (PF17000). Both platforms are being constructed by Sembcorp Marine’s wholly owned subsidiary, Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms. The cranes will be used to load and unload cargo safely between CTVs (Crew transfer vessels) and the decks of the substations.


“We are working closely with our long-term business partner, Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms, and are coordinating the sophisticated requirements with our design engineers in Austria and Norway. The Sembcorp Marine team we are working with is particularly professional in terms of project implementation. Resources that are in short supply need to be utilized in the best possible way to ensure a flawless project outcome. That can happen only when everybody involved works together efficiently,”
said Alexander Lee, Area Sales Manager in Singapore.

“The office in Singapore handles Sales and After-Sales tasks, and the project execution is handled by the project management teams in Austria and Norway. That works great. At PALFINGER, we are always challenging each other to find even better solutions.”
