Red Rock Technology on Board

– Adding some of our new Red Rock technology features to this crane package delivery, we’re proud to be partnering with Jan De Nul Group on offering the most efficient installation method of offshore wind farms. This is a clear indication that Red Rock is on the fast-track to literally becoming a heavyweight contributor to the offshore wind market, says Red Rock CCO Thomas Holte.

The super vessel is designed and constructed to install some of the largest and heaviest wind turbine foundations into deep waters and in challenging seabed conditions. “Les Alizes” is currently meeting a demand within the offshore wind energy sector to design and install a new generation of large turbines.

– Sitting on giant foundations up to 2,500 tons, stretching 270 meters towards the sky, and with blades the length of football fields, it is satisfactory that Red Rock technology is needed to add value to an undertaking we all consider to be a tall order, which is to ensure the vessel’s capability to install very large wind turbines greener and less expensive, explains Holte.

– It’s a partnership very much in sync with Red Rock strategy of innovation and operations, adds Holte.
