Van Oord’s Aeolus Returns to Saint Brieuc OWF After Crane Upgrade
Van Oord’s freshly upgraded offshore installation vessel Aeolus navigated back to Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm off the north coast of Brittany, France. After a conversion period at Damen Verolme and an outfitting period in Vlissingen, Aeolus sports a new and improved 133m long crane boom designed by Huisman.

Van Oord invests, to keep the Aeolus competitive in a rapidly changing market where wind turbines continue to increase in power and thus size.
Harold Linssen, Ship Management director: “We want to thank all the colleagues involved for the impressive amount of work. We wish the Aeolus a prosperous execution of the remaining installation works at the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm.”
