Motus Technology to Provide Platform Main Crane to Equinor`s Empire Wind 1 Offshore Wind Farm in the U.S

Motus Technology is awarded a contract by Seatrium Limited to deliver engineering, design, and construction of the platform main crane to Empire Wind 1 Offshore Substation.

The main platform crane from Motus will be delivered to Seatrium’s Singapore yard, before the offshore substation platform will be installed about 20 miles south of Long Island.

Following completion, the Empire Wind 1 OSS Platform will be operated by Equinor. The project will power several hundred thousand homes in New York and is expected to be a significant contributor in supporting the United States’ (U.S.) energy transition goals for a low-carbon future.

Motus Technology has delivered lifting and handling solutions for the offshore wind marke with the state-of-the-art 3D motion compensated and solid technology for Commissioning Service Operational Vessel`s (CSOV). For Motus Technology to be trusted by leading international players like Seatrium Limited, affirms Motus’s capabilities in providing high-quality solutions for the offshore renewables sector. Through long-term dedication, Motus Technology has now succeeded in taking a position within offshore wind globally.

“We take genuine pride in bringing the benefit of our technological expertise to the offshore wind sector and to be chosen by Seatrium Limited for the design and delivery of the main pedestal crane for installation on the Empire Wind Offshore Platform,” says Magnus Lerheim, Sales Manager in Motus Technology.

The delivery from Motus Technology consists of a self-contained electric-hydraulic offshore crane with a strong focus on safety, reliability, and quality. The crane is developed to lift 5-tonnes at 30 meters and is designed in accordance with the API 2C Eight Edition. It will comply with U.S. statutory laws and regulations for inspection, installation, and operation in offshore U.S. Federal areas.

As the crane will be left unattended for long periods, special considerations are given to protect the crane components from the harsh offshore conditions and to reduce the required maintenance and start-up time for mobilizing/demobilizing on the platform.  

“This contract award supports our strategy to increase our supply of high-end cranes to the renewable industry. Through its operations in the U.S., the Empire Wind platform will contribute to decarbonization offering non-fossil power from offshore wind. Empire Wind 1 is one of the most mature offshore wind projects on the east coast of the U.S., and we are excited to be part of this development,” says Kjell Hollen, CEO of Motus Technology.
