Fred. Olsen Windcarrier's BRAVE TERN staat hier voor het eerst op de verlengde poten (ruim 90 meter lang). Het schip kan hiermee zo'n 70 meter boven de boden staan, bijvoorbeeld om windmolens in zee te plaatsen. De hijsarm van de scheepskraan, ook verlengd, kan tot ruim 120 m boven dek hijsen. In deze stand is de bovenkant van de kraan dus op dezelfde hoogte als het topje van de Euromast!
windcarrier.com: Brave Tern and Bold Tern are self-elevating and self-propelled, with large open deck space that can accommodate different types of operations.
The vessels have 800-tonne wrap-around-the-leg offshore-rated cranes, as well as robust, continuous-type hydraulic jacking systems. In addition, each vessel has a DP2-class type dynamic positioning system and is fitted with a Voith Schneider propulsion system enabling secure and accurate positioning capabilities. Brave Tern and Bold Tern feature high-quality accommodation for up to 80 people in 56 cabins, and have helidecks for transfers during offshore operations.
These images were taken in the Heysehaven (Port of Rotterdam). The camera was lifted by a kite.
The extended legs are being tested for the first time. the BRAVE TERN is 70 meter above water.
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier's self-elevating, self-propelled jack-up vessel BRAVE TERN is being fitted with longer legs for coming projects. This upgrade is carried out in the Heysehaven in Rotterdam. In this photo series one leg has been extended. The front one with scaffolding is next… The Brave Tern will also be fitted with a longer crane boom.
