Japanese FPSO company MODEC has ordered Palfinger cranes for an FPSO it is building for deployment at Woodside's Sangomar development offshore Senegal. Palfinger said Tuesday it would deliver two wire luffing lattice boom cranes for the FPSO.
The two DKW1600 wire luffing lattice boom cranes will have a maximum lifting capacity of 30 metric tons and a maximum outreach of 35 meters.
Sverre Mowinckel-Nilsen, Sales Director PALFINGER Marine and Handling Solutions said:"We are proud to be selected as the supplier of the main cranes onboard the first FPSO for Senegalese waters and we are looking forward to continuing our long-term relationship with MODEC."
