Watch: Full Height Tested For Wind Farm Installation Vessel Brave Tern

The Brave Tern, a vessel used for the installation of wind turbines at sea, dominated the Rotterdam skyline. The 132 meter long ship was jacked up to a height of about seventy meters to test its extended legs.

The Brave Tern is owned by Norwegian Fred. Olsen Windcarrier. The vessel has four so called jacking legs with which she can position herself firmly on the seabed. The four legs of the Brave Tern are extended with fourteen meter each up to 92,4 meters during recent weeks in Rotterdam.

The crane is capable to lift up to 120 meter above the deck of the Brave Tern and is capable of carrying four complete ‘multi megawatt’ turbines, including towers and rotor blades. The vessel can operate in water depths up to sixty meters.
