OHT co-host student delegation to CMHI Shipyard
11 July this year a student delegation from Delft University of Technology based in the Netherlands visited the China Merchants Heavy Industry (CMHI) facility in Haimen, close to Nantong in China, where OHT offshore heavy lift crane installation vessel of Alfa Lift design is currently under construction. The visit was a part of their ‘Great Voyage’ within the shipbuilding industry in Asia.
The agenda for the day was divided into three sections; Company introductions by CMHI, OHT and Ulstein Design. Secondly a presentation of the Alfa Lift project where we shared our vision of the future transport and installation market, followed by a highly interesting excursion at the shipyard. The Marine Technology students were deeply impressed as they experienced how theoretical knowledge is later transformed into innovative solutions as a response to the increasing demand for efficient transportation and installation within the offshore wind market.
