Palfinger wins Johan Sverdrup crane order

Offshore staff

SALZBURG, Austria – Statoil has contracted Palfinger Dreggen to supply seven large offshore cranes for the Johan Sverdrup field complex in the central Norwegian North Sea.

Value of the order is around NOK 285 million ($37 million).

The cranes will have a lifting capacity of 60 tons, an outreach of roughly 60 m (197 ft), and will be equipped with full-electric drive.

This feature should improve energy efficiency and lead to reduced maintenance, Palfinger claims, adding that the total lifecycle cost of electric cranes is lower than conventional electro-hydraulic solutions.
