Jumbo pioneered the transport from the port of Flushing (Netherlands) to the Offshore installation site at the East coast of the UK and installation with a free floating vessel, which makes transit to the worksite and positioning next to the monopile a lot faster then more conventional methods using Jack-up vessels. With a workability for critical lifts in wave heights up to at least Hs = 1.5m*, Jumbo Offshore is now able to deliver various installation services for offshore wind farms.
