The Ulstein designed OHT ‘Alfa Lift’ newbuild, a foundation installation vessel, was floated out at the CMHI yard. At the moment, the vessel is getting prepared for crane installation.
As explained, the vessel will be working on Equinor’s Dogger Bank, the largest offshore wind farm in the world, after its delivery in 2021- 2022.
This semi-submersible offshore wind foundation installation vessel has been designed and developed by Ulstein Design & Solutions BV for Offshore Heavy Transport (OHT).

‘This is an important milestone that brings Alfa Lift one step closer to entering service and helping to satisfy the ever-growing global demand for custom-built offshore wind installation vessels. We have no doubt that Alfa Lift will be a very busy vessel for many years to come’.
