Turbine transition piece crane order

Industry Database

An Austrian crane specialist will deliver 81 cranes for the Taiwanese wpd’s Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm.

As a full-service provider, Palfinger Marine has secured an order for 80+1 cranes for the next upcoming major commercial wind power project off the Taiwanese coast.

The Yunlin Offshore Wind Farm consists of 80 turbines and has a project capacity of 640MW. Each turbine platform will be equipped with one fixed boom crane, which has an outreach of 4.6 metres and a lifting capacity of 1 ton. Additionally, one crane will be installed onshore for training purposes.

The latest generation of the Palfinger PF type transition piece crane series sets new standards for maintenance and safety. As long as the crane is serviced regularly, no spare parts will be needed if the crane is used for typical offshore wind applications for around two years.

All components meet corrosion class ISO 12944-9 category CX and all electrical components that will be staying outside permanently comply with a protection class of at least IP 66.

Palfinger is currently the leading supplier to the Taiwanese offshore wind market with an amount of 145 cranes in total.
