Drawing on over 30 years experience of supplying high quality cranes for offshore applications, Protea has recently unveiled an all new service crane targeted at the offshore wind industry.

The compact 2t SWL crane is an ideal lifting solution for light lifting and handling operations on unmanned platforms such as offshore wind turbines. Its innovative and compact design features extra high grade steel to increase strength whilst reducing weight and high quality, low maintenance components to ensure a long and reliable service life.

“Protea has prior experience of the offshore wind market having previously supplied the offshore substation cranes for the Sheringham Shoal wind farm,” highlighted Graham Manning, Protea’s Global Sales Manager.

“This crane is designed to meet the specific requirements of the offshore wind sector and is a safe, reliable, low maintenance, operator friendly unit that can be easily configured to suit the requirements of an individual offshore wind farm development or turbine manufacturer.”

The service crane is designed in accordance with the relevant DNV and NORSOK codes and has a fully electric hoist with AOPS and MOPS overload protection. A range of options such as electrical slew drive or visual display showing service requirements can also be provided to meet specific client requirements.

Supplied as turnkey, fully tested unit from Protea’s state of the art facility in Kluczbork, the crane can be quickly installed and commissioned on a wind turbine base platform by Protea’s experienced team of service engineers. It can then be used to safely and efficiently transfer spares and equipment from support boats to the turbine.
