Floating offshore cranes became an important speciality of Turku Shipyard in the 80`s.
The crane ships were designed and built for the service in the oil fields of the Russian continental shelf. The biggest of them "Stanislav Judenits" had the hoisting capacity of 1600 tons when delivered and was later on upgraded to 2500 tons, being one of the biggest crane vessels in the world at that time. The crane, supplied by KONE can reach 48,5 metres and lift cargo to a height of 60 metres above the water.
Turku Shipyard has designed and delivered a number of dredgers for different tasks, such as to work in the very shallow waters, in ice and in the Arctic conditions.
The dredgers have been designed for the Arctic waters to keep open the channels in the shallow rivers of Siberia.
