HARCO Heavy Lifting delivered a fully automated tagline system for installation of blades and nacelle with rotor during the DOT FOX Project in September / October 2021.
The project was executed safely and efficiently according to schedule. The HARCO DP Tagline system assisted Heerema in validating proof of concept by safely controlling the WTG components at all given windspeeds.

About DOT FOX Project
The project was about testing floating installation of XXL turbines offshore. It was the first offshore test of a novel method of assembling and installing XXL wind turbines onboard a floating, dynamically positioned vessel. The test included Heerema’s GREP Tool for installing blades onboard the vessel, as well as the slip joint connection which can reduce the number of bolted flanges during turbine installation. Furthermore, Heerema tested the Vibro Lifting Tool, to remove the monopile used for testing. All of this put together will make it possible to reduce the installation time for offshore wind turbines significantly.
