Jumbo Offshore, the heavy lift specialist, has contracted Huisman to provide the design and construction of two offshore mast cranes for their LNG-powered DP2 Heavy Lift Crane Vessel (HLCV).

The main crane of the vessel to be delivered in the first quarter of 2020 will have a 2,500-ton capacity. The second subsea crane will have capacity for 400 ton, Jumbo said in its statement.

The heavy lift crane vessel has been designed together with Ulstein Design and Solutions with considerations for environmental considerations and will be powered by fuel engines and has the ability to run on natural gas (LNG).

With a vessel length of 185 meters and a width of 36 meters, the HLCV will be the world’s largest X-BOW vessel.
