Heavy-lift jack-up vessels

Custom-designed jack-up vessels for wind turbine installation – or for use as lift-boats in the oil and gas industries

We design and construct heavy-lift jack-up vessels for the offshore wind, and oil and gas markets. These self-elevating platforms can be delivered as a package or turnkey, according to customer specifications.

  • Consultancy services during conceptual stage
  • Custom-design incorporating customers’ operational philosophy
  • Training – essential input for operational excellence
  • Knowledge of marine operations translated into efficient design
  • Operational security as a result of our efficient support

Optimised design – from both an operational and construction perspective

Our extensive operational know-how enables us to optimise our jack-up designs, resulting in a self-elevating platform with an efficient deck layout and full integration of hydraulic systems for jacking and lifting tools.

We are able to deliver both stationary and self-propelled vessels that can meet all dynamic positioning levels. Naturally, all IHC vessels comply with regulatory requirements for the offshore wind farm sector and the offshore oil and gas industries. 

Flexible scope: from basic design to turnkey

Royal IHC may be renowned as a provider of turnkey solutions in the offshore market, but we are also able to customise all areas of the heavy-lift jack-up vessel to suit your requirements. For example, the current design features a single acting pin-and-hole system, which can be modified to a continuous pin-and-hole system if preferred. We are happy to incorporate your ideas into the design, in order to ensure that you get the best and most cost-efficient vessel for your operation. We are not only flexible in our design approach, but also in the scope of our delivery. We can offer everything from a basic design to a turnkey vessel, from our own shipyards or partner shipyards around the world, as well as components for a third-party design. Anything is possible.
