The 140 meter long Aeolus, a specialized vessel for the construction of offshore wind farms, needs to have four gigantic jack-up legs set up. The LR 13000 is utilized by Dutch heavy load and crane expert Mammoet to meet this issue. The 140 meter long Aeolus, a specialized vessel utilized in offshore wind farm development, requires the construction of four massive jack-up legs. Dutch high load and crane specialist Mammoet sends in the LR 13000 to deal with this issue.
With a maximum lifting capacity of 3,000 tonnes, the LR 13000 is the world’s most powerful crawler crane of conventional design. High load capacities and exceedingly accurate work are required for the specialist application at the Lloyd shipyard in Bremerhaven. The Aeolus will then be raised 45 meters above the deep water’s waves. The specialized vessel functions as a sizable jack-up platform independently of all sea states.
The LR 13000 is equipped with the PowerBoom parallel boom system to raise the strong jack-up legs for the first time. Each of the so-called “jack-up legs” is 87 meters in length and weighs 940 tonnes. PowerBoom can stretch the lattice boom across a length of 48 meters in parallel. As a result, the crane is more stable, and steep boom positions have an increase in load capabilities of about 50% above conventional boom positions.
Thanks to the LR 13000’s quick setup design and the help of Liebherr experts, installation takes a lot less time than the four weeks that were initially anticipated. In just twelve days, the biggest crawler crane reaches a lift-ready height of 130 meters.
