Bremen-based shipping group Harren and Partner has acquired an offshore construction vessel from English operator OIG Group for an undisclosed price.

Blue Giant was built for Harren and Partner in 2008 by Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven in Germany. The vessel was sold in 2011 to the OIG Group. Since delivery, the vessel has been continuously under the technical management of Harren and Partner.

The offshore construction vessel has a length of 179.63 metres and breadth of 25.4 metres.

Its dynamic positioning system allows for fast and efficient changes of location without the need for tugs. With a combined crane capacity of up to 700 tonnes and one height extended crane up to 60 metres, Blue Giant is able to salvage containers from the top layers.

The vessel is equipped with a cabin block which can accommodate up to 200 people, a moon pool, a helideck and a fire fighting system reaching a distance of 180 metres.
