The NG-20000X-HF vessels are among the largest wind installation jack-ups in the industry. They feature a 3,250-ton heavy lift crane and can install foundations up to 3,000 tons and wind turbines with tip heights over 300 metres in water depths up to 70 metres.
The vessel’s large carrying capacity reduces the vessel trips required per development, thereby improving project economics, and reducing carbon emissions per installed megawatt, according to NOV.
Like the vessel currently under construction under the first contract, Havfram’s second self-propelled jack-up vessel will be equipped with the proven NOV variable speed drive rack and pinion jacking system, including the latest regenerative power system technology that feeds the generated power back into the vessel’s system.
In December 2022, NOV inked the contract with CIMC Raffles for the first Havfram’s wind installation jack-up vessel.
