We pride ourselves on providing robust and reliable equipment for every stage of an offshore wind farm’s life cycle. Together with IHC IQIP and our independent subsidiaries, Vuyk Engineering and KCI, we have an extensive track record in the offshore wind sector. This allows us to offer a package of innovative and integrated solutions for the offshore wind market.
IHC can supply integrated cablelay spreads for existing or newly built vessels. We can provide full deck solutions including tracked tensioners, linear cable engines, carousels and control systems. We offer cable handling equipment for both sale and rental – from single components through to complete deck solutions.
With the introduction of large 10+ MW turbines and heavy foundations (1,500-2,000t), installations have never been more challenging. We recently designed a dynamic outrigger frame, with a motion-compensated gripper that can install the largest monopiles with a heavy lift vessel, while on DP. IHC IQIP has a proven track record in foundation and installation equipment and offers a wide range of equipment for this phase of a wind farm.
Offshore wind installations and service operations require the safe and efficient transfer of personnel and equipment, from floating vessels to wind turbine foundations. We designed the motion-compensated SEA-LINK® gangway to provide a safe and rapid transfer, and increase the operational window of an offshore operation.
