Breman Delivers Monopile Gripper
Breman Machinery recently delivered a second Mono-pile Gripper on behalf of Van Oord Ship Management, a leading international contractor specialized in dredging, marine engineering and offshore projects.
After success with the first gripper, Van Oord ordered a second gripper by the end of October 2014. The second gripper, measuring 14,5x29x13,5m and with a weight of 560 mT was assembled and tested at Bremans facility in Ijmuiden. This new facility, built in 2013, is located in the port of IJmuiden and has an open connection to the North Sea.
The gripper was partially welded, machined and painted at Bremans facility in Genemuiden.
To reach a short delivery time like on this gripper, Breman Machinery re-examined the whole production process of Gripper 1.0 and made, wherever possible, changes to improve the quality and shorten the lead time. This resulted into a high quality product and a satisfied customer.
