Block Island - USA

The first offshore wind farm in the United States, Block Island, was completed for GE wind USA. This was a 30-MegaWatt project concerning 5 turbines. The Extreema® heavy lift soft slings were used, by Fred Olsen Wind Carrier, for the transport and installation of the nacelles from Alstom/GE Wind in Saint Nazaire (France) to the US coast waters. A fit for purpose rotating lifting tool was engineered and supplied in combination with Extreema® heavy lift soft slings for perfect balance and positioning conditions under difficult circumstances at sea.
