Orion gets a lift from Liebherr

March 2 - Liebherr has been awarded the contract to supply the heavy lift crane for DEME's Orion.

As HLPFI reported yesterday, DEME's wind farm installation and platform decommissioning vessel will feature a 3,000-tonne capacity crane with a maximum lifting height in excess of 170 m. According to Liebherr, it will be the biggest crane it has developed so far.

Liebherr's sales director, Gordon Clark, said: "It is a great honour to work with both DEME and Cosco on such a revolutionary project, and fits well in to our company strategy … We see a promising future in the heavy lift sector, with growth in both the green energy sector and also offshore decommissioning."

The Liebherr offshore crane division made the strategic decision in 2016 to extend its range of heavy lift cranes to better position the company in the expanding decommissioning and offshore wind markets.
Apart from the main crane, the order also includes two of Liebherr's RL-K 4200 knuckle boom cranes and an offshore crane simulator. The delivery of the heavy lift crane is expected in Spring 2019.
