Our fleet of heavy lift vessels offer versatile transportation & installation solutions using a self-propelled vessel equipped with a crane with lifting capacities of 3,000 and 4,000 ton.
Boskalis operates two state-of-the-art DP2 self-propelled heavy lift vessels offering versatile transportation & installation solutions using cranes with lifting capacities of 3,000 and 4,000 ton. These vessels can be used for transportation and installation of jackets and monopiles for offshore wind turbines as well as new-build oil and gas production platforms. Furthermore they can be deployed for the decommissioning of offshore structures.
In 2017 Boskalis converted one of its semi-submersible heavy lift vessels into a DP2 crane vessel, including a 3,000 ton crane. The available deck space of 165m x 43m is unique in its sort. Due to its DP-2 capabilities there is no loss time for anchor spread deployment. The vessel can accommodate 150 persons and has a helicopter deck available for offshore transfers.
Following the successful deployment of the crane vessel Bokalift 1, Boskalis commissioned an even more powerful crane vessel in 2022: the Bokalift 2. This DP2 crane vessel has a revolving crane with a lifting capacity of 4,000 tons capable of lifting structures more than 100 meters high. The vessel has 7,500 m2 of free deck space and can accommodate 150 persons. Also, she is currently outfitted with fully operational monopile installation equipment consisting of a motion compensated pile gripper frame (MCPGF) and an upend hinge; both designed for monopiles weighing up to 3,000mt.
