Boskalis’ Heavy Transport Vessels Working on Renewable Energy Projects
Around the world, dozens of offshore wind farms are being constructed. In the coming years that number will only continue to grow.
The transport of all the components needed for those wind farms is therefore vital. And so, Boskalis’ heavy transport vessels are increasingly being deployed for these renewable energy projects. A prime example of this ‘new wave’ is their White Marlin. In recent years she has been particularly active with transports for the oil and gas market, but late last month the White Marlin successfully completed its first ‘green energy transport’.
The first eight 80-meter-long monopiles for the future Moray West wind farm from OW Ocean Winds were loaded in Asia and sailed to the port of Invergordon in Scotland.
Later this year, their crane vessel Bokalift 2 will pick up the monopiles in the port of Invergordon and subsequently install them using its new, state-of-the-art installation equipment

Later this year, our crane vessel Bokalift 2 will pick up the monopiles in the port of Invergordon and subsequently install them using its new, state-of-the-art installation equipment. In the meantime, Boskalis will carry out the seabed preparation activities by installing a layer of rock that will act as a filter and scour protection for the Moray West XXL monopiles.

The execution of the majority of projects is scheduled to take place in 2021 and 2022.
