KenzFigee to supply offshore pedestal crane for East Anglia THREE converter station

KenzFigee has won a contract from Aker Solutions for the delivery of an offshore pedestal crane for installation on ScottishPower Renewables HVDC (high-voltage, direct current) converter station for the East Anglia THREE (EA3) offshore wind farm in the UK.

The delivery involves an electric hydraulic box boom offshore Ram Luffing 2400 type designed and manufactured by KenzFigee. The crane will be designed and verified in accordance with the EN13852-1 and certified against DNVGL-ST-0378 lifting requirements, all with a strong focus on safety, reliability and easy and low maintenance. To ensure the highest possible quality, the crane will be equipped with top‐notch well‐known West European brands and assembled and tested at our premises in the Netherlands.

The expected delivery of the Ram Luffing offshore crane is scheduled for the second quarter in 2024.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by Aker Solutions for the design and delivery of our robust offshore pedestal crane for installation on the East Anglia THREE (EA3) HVDC converter station, which will be located in the North Sea off the east coast of England. This contract award perfectly fits in our strategy to increase the supply of our electrically driven products to the renewable industry”, says Robert de Rijcke, CCO of KenzFigee.

Aker Solutions, in a consortium with Siemens Energy, signed a contract with ScottishPower Renewables to provide the HVDC (high-voltage, direct current) converter stations back in 2021.
