Hiab receives a large order for loader cranes used in offshore wind turbines


Hiab, part of Cargotec, has received a large order of EUR 5 million for loader cranes to be used in offshore wind turbines. The order was booked in Cargotec’s Q1 2024 orders received and will be delivered during 2024.  

The crane model ordered is the HIAB SWP, custom-designed for the service operations of offshore wind turbines. Installed in the nacelle, the enclosure that houses all of the generating components, the cranes can perform a multitude of lifting tasks. Whether it is hoisting equipment from sea-level platforms or managing deliveries to the helicopter pad at the top of the turbine, the cranes excel even in difficult conditions. 

A growing sector

"This order greatly acknowledges Hiab as a trusted global partner in the offshore wind sector. We are well-prepared and excited to support the customer in the years ahead," says Artur Jaslowski, Global Product Manager, Loader Cranes Light & Medium, Hiab. 

Offshore wind power is a growing industry as there is a surging demand for renewable energy sources. In 2022, the global offshore wind capacity grew by 8.8 GW to a total capacity of 64.3 GW according to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). Worldwide, the GWEC expects 26 GW to be added annually on average until 2027.
