Harren & Partner Acquire 500t Lift Jack-up Vessel Thor from DEME

DEME has entered into an agreement with German shipping and logistics company Harren & Partner to sell the DP2 jack-up installation vessel ‘Thor’.

The vessel is sold after a successful career of more than 10 years in the DEME fleet, whereby it was largely deployed for the installation and maintenance of offshore wind farms.

The Harren & Partner fleet now consists of four offshore construction units: The DP2 offshore construction and heavy lift vessel Mexican Giant, the DP3 offshore construction heavy lift twin-gantry catamaran VB-10,000 (US flag, Jones Act compliant) and the two jack-up vessels, Wind Lift I (DP1) and Thor.

DEME has already established the most modern and versatile fleet in the offshore wind industry, with five jack-up installation vessels. Soon DEME will again add to the fleet when it welcomes the new DP3 offshore installation vessel ‘Orion’, which features a 5,000-tonne crane, and is the first of its kind in the sector. Meanwhile, in Taiwan, DEME and its partner CSBC are building ‘Green Jade’. These two giants will bring a game-changing installation concept to the offshore energy market.
