UK based Crane King Ltd have successfully supplied and installed the first 2 of 4 Iron Fist Telescopic quayside cranes, that will support Offshore Windfarm Operations for Orsted (formerly DONG Energy) at their Walney site.
All cranes are mounted on purpose built pedestals and designed and integrated to meet the specific operational requirements of the client. Complete with the latest load limiting devices for both the crane and winch, the cranes are also individually regulated with their slewing to prevent collision. Although static and land based they are purpose built Marine Cranes, designed in accordance with DNV 2.2 and also adhere to the mandatory CE regulations. All cranes are operated via Radio Control with manual back up controls on the pedestal.
Working with Orsted Project Engineers and on-site contractors, the engineering team from Crane King installed and commissioned the cranes within the projected schedule, enabling operations to commence as planned and without interruption.
“We have been working hard over sometime to build a strong relationship with Iron Fist” commented Steve Fisher, Crane King’s Business Development Director. “The combination of our expertise in delivering projects to the marine industry and the quality of Iron Fist Marine Cranes has provided a strong and secure partnership. These latest orders from Orsted demonstrate the strength of this partnership and we take great pride in ensuring we deliver equipment and service of the highest standards.”
