Brave Tern Crane boom extension

Mid June of this year, GustoMSC delivered and commissioned the crane boom insert truss of Fred Olsens's Brave Tern (NG-9000C design).

This order resulted from earlier work upgrading the Bold Tern and the Brave Tern and is similar to the lengthening of the boom already performed for Bold Tern. This time our delivery for the Brave Tern included supplying the insert truss to Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, as well as on-board measurement of the existing boom to make sure the new boom section will be seamlessly integrated when finished. 

The crane boom extension enables the vessel to handle the largest turbines in the market, such as the MHI Vestas V164 model. Last week the Brave Tern arrived in Esbjerg, Denmark, and is loading the first set of wind turbine components to be installed on Vattenfall’s Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm.
