PALFINGER MARINE strengthens its market position by becoming complete crane supplier for all wind turbines of Trianel wind farm Borkum II.
 
PALFINGER MARINE is proud to be chosen as supplier of platform and nacelle cranes for the Trianel wind farm Borkum II. The wind farm, located in the North Sea approximately 40 km north of the island Borkum, consists of 32 Senvion 6.2M152 turbines. These wind turbines will generate about 200 MW hours of electricity. PALFINGER MARINE is the complete crane supplier for all 32 wind turbines. It will deliver 32 hydraulic foldable knuckle boom cranes (PK40002M), to be installed in the nacelles, and 32 electro-hydraulic stiff boom cranes (PSM400), to be mounted on the platforms. The nacelle cranes, with an attractive compact design, will be handed over between July and December 2018. The delivery of the DNV GL approved platform cranes is scheduled between February and April 2018.

87 platform cranes to be delivered to the Hohe See and Albatros wind farms, Germany’s largest offshore wind farm project under construction

Another big order that PALFINGER MARINE secured in 2017 is the delivery of 87 platform cranes for Germany’s largest offshore wind farm project under construction. In its role as main contractor for Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI), Siemens awarded PALFINGER MARINE the contract for the delivery of 71 fixed boom cranes (PF8000) to the Hohe See wind farm and another 16 fixed boom cranes (PF8000) to the Albatros wind farm. Both wind farms, located far out in the North Sea, are being constructed as a joint project by EnBW. Together, they will generate 610 MW  hours of electricity to supply around 710,000 households with renewable energy. The fully electric PF 8000 platform cranes with an outreach of 2.9 m have already been successfully delivered to Gemini, Gode Wind and RaceBank and are already in their fourth generation. The deliveries for the Hohe See project will run until the end of 2017. All 16 cranes to be mounted at the Albatros wind farm will be handed over in February / March 2018.
 
“These large-scale orders show that all our efforts over the last 15 years in the offshore wind business are paying off and we are on the right track. Being selected for another EnBW/Siemens wind farm project after the successful collaboration in the course of the Baltic II project proves that our customers are satisfied with our premium-class cranes. It is also a huge success and strengthens our market position that we have been chosen as the complete crane supplier for the Trianel Borkum II wind turbines”, says Rupert Reischl, Global Sales Manager – Wind Cranes.
