To strengthen its position in the renewables market, Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. decided to succeed the Bokalift 1 project with the conversion of its next crane vessel Bokalift 2. This vessel was originally build as drilling vessel and was found to be a perfect starting point for a crane vessel conversion.

The conversion scope includes the fabrication and installation of steel sponsons on both sides of the vessel to increase the stability of the vessel and the installation of a new work deck. A 4000 ton crane will be installed on the vessel , with the capacity of lifting structures more than 100 meters high.

The vessel is converted at the shipyard Drydocks World in Dubai. After that the Bokalift 2 will be deployed for the first time at the Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farm project in Taiwan. The project includes the transportation and installation of 62 three-legged jacket foundations and the accompanying 186 pin piles.
