Mærsk Supply Service


Mærsk Supply Service has developed the ‘Vertical Installer’ concept, where a crane solution for both onshore and offshore wind turbines can significantly decrease installation costs. This crane solution is aimed to address the industry’s future challenges within the installation and logistics of wind turbines to decrease the cost of energy.

The project is an innovative partnership between MHI Vestas Offshore Wind and Mærsk Supply Service. This joint collaboration aims to create synergy between Vestas’ sustainable energy insights and Mærsk Supply Service’s marine and logistics capabilities.
