Alfa Lift design
The Alfa Lift design is an installation crane vessel design with semi-submersible heavy transportation capabilities. The vessel is designed (patent pending) to install all types of bottom fixed offshore wind foundations and will also transport and install topsides and subsea modules, in addition to other heavy cargoes within oil and gas.
The versatile crane can lift high cargoes from deck as well as install subsea templates. The crane operates in two main modes, either with one main hook of 3,000 mt or with dual hooks of 2 x 1,500 mt. The ship is equipped with a transport system on the main deck to bring cargo within reach of the main crane and upending tool. Monopiles are never suspended in free air during installation. They are either in their storage position, in the deck mounted transportation system or in the upending tool, which hands the monopile directly into the pile gripper frame.
