Upgrade heavy lift installation vessel

Holland Shipyards Group secured contract for the major upgrade of Van Oord's heavy lift installation vessel 'Svanen'.

The Holland Shipyards Group yard is set to elevate the gantry crane of heavy lift vessel, 'Svanen', by an impressive 25 meters, with a weighty addition of 1200 tonnes. This ambitious undertaking is in response to the burgeoning demands of the offshore market, particularly in tandem with the soaring heights of wind turbines.

This project not only spotlights our expertise in steel construction, but also symbolizes the trust and longstanding collaboration with Van Oord. Also when it comes to other markets, such as the rental of accommodations and repairs in inland shipping, we have been serving Van Oord. We are thankful for their trust in our capabilities.

The upgraded Svanen will be operational in the third quarter of 2024.
