The NG-5500C is intended for use in water depths of up to 45 m

in a North Sea environment (year around). The NG-5500C is
equipped with an 800 t heavy duty offshore crane developed by
GustoMSC for the Wind Turbine Installation market. The GLC-800ED crane combines a high capacity and high outreach with a short
minimum radius and is located on top of the starboard aft
Jack-house and revolves 360 unrestricted around the leg. The
main deck is reinforced for the transportation of wind turbine
parts or other heavy components. In addition the vessel has the
ability to work in the Offshore Oil & Gas sector.
