Conversion to crane vessel

For Boskalis, Vuyk performed the design for the conversion of a semi-submersible heavy lift vessel into the self-propelled crane vessel Bokalift 1. This includes the integration of a 3000-ton revolving crane and increasing the accommodation capacity.

In 2017 Boskalis converted one of its semi-submersible heavy lift vessels into a DP-2 Crane vessel, including a 3000 tib crace. That is not where it stops. With the design of Vuyk, the vessel can accommodate 150 persons and there is an addition of a helideck.
