HARCO Heavy Lifting successfully exchanged 4 gearboxes at Horns Rev 1 in June 2021.
Despite challenges due to bad weather, all gearboxes were exchanged within the 13 days window, including all preparatory and finalizing works.
HARCO strives to keep the turbines running, increasing availability while simultaneously reducing jack-up charter rates.
This was achieved in close collaboration with the Vattenfall Main Component Exchange team, site crew and Jack-up supplier, enabling an optimum execution.
“Harco supported Vattenfall in exchanging 4 gearboxes in record time at Horns Rev 1. In cooperation with Harco, we are now able to perform main component exchanges with a minimum of jackup charter rates.”
