It doesn’t take an engineering degree to work out that a longer boom can’t lift as much as a shorter one, all things being equal. But the cranes on board SEA INSTALLER and SEA CHALLENGER were dimensioned to lift foundations, so we’re still operating at around half of their full capacity. By 2020, we expect turbine components to top out at some 550 tons, still leaving us with 150 tons of lifting capacity.
