The main crane will have a triple hoist to handle complicated upending operations. It will also have a 600t capacity auxiliary hoist with active heave compensation (AHC) and a depth rating of 3000m.
The second crane will have capacity of 400t and AHC to 3000m on the main hoist. It will be positioned to service the moon pool and there will be a man-riding whip hoist.
