Royal IHC hands over new crane vessel to Scaldis

Royal IHC, a Dutch supplier of equipment, vessels, and services, has handed over the fully self-propelled crane vessel named Gulliver to Scaldis.

Royal IHC said on Wednesday that the vessel was handed over to Scaldis, a subsidiary of Deme, Jan de Nul, and Herbosch-Kiere, on April 20.

The company managed the complete scope of work including the design, procurement, ship construction in China, and commissioning.

Royal IHC added that, when the vessel was mechanical complete, it was transferred from China to ROG Rotterdam to finalize the commissioning activities and acceptance tests.

The successful sea trials and 4,000 tonnes load test meant that the vessel was ready for operations.

The design was drawn up in-house in close cooperation with Vuyk Engineering Rotterdam, based on the heavy lift experience of Scaldis.

Gulliver possesses all key assets of the owner’s other heavy lift vessel Rambiz as well as improvements such as upgraded workability, increased lifting capacity and lifting height, fully self-propelled DP2 capabilities, skidding cranes to allow greater flexibility to deck spaces, enlarged deck space, and a helideck.

The vessel will be operated by Scaldis for the installation of offshore infrastructures and decommissioning and deconstruction activities for the oil and gas industry as well as the installation of offshore wind farms.

It will also be able to perform other types of marine-related heavy lifting work such as the construction of bridge components and clearing subsea obstacles.
