igus® has desigened customized rotary trough system for the Innovation and Vidar. Assembly and commissioning of both systems done at Crist Shipyard in Gdynia, Poland
The Innovation is a havy lift jack-up vessel and is built to install and maintain offshore wind farms. The igus® Multi Rotation Module is the main power supply for the “crane around the leg” and the 2 layer design allows a rotation angle of 900°.
Rotation angle: 470°
chainflex: CF27, CF11, CF14, CF Koax, CFLG
Split guide trough system
Total weight of e-chain® and cables: 3,5 t
Opposing e-chains® series 5050 with igus® guide trough system and support structure – outer diameter: 12 m, rotation angle 340°
Rotary system with “floating islands” for safe operation on rough Sea – rotation angle 540°
The vertical tiltable lay tower works with the biggest polymer chain in the world.

Stainless steel guide trough with hook solution
The conductive material igumid ESD has offered explosion protection and protection against electrostatic buildup since 2002. This material is based on a material which was developed as early as 1992, modified in 2002 and certified by the PTB as early as eleven years ago.
igumid ESD with PTB certificate
All standard e.chains® available in igumid ESD
Tested and successfully proven in explosionprotection areas for many years
Marking: II 2 GD – Special color of the ESD e.chain® color: gray (similar to RAL 7015)
The A-Frame structure of this vessel works with e-chain® 5050C.47.400/400.0. The special design with a “reversed bending radius“ allows safe operation to any position on the vessel. The system was installed and commissioned in year 2008.
The heavy lift crane has a max. rotation angle of 560° and igus® e-chains® guide the cable package for the main hoist- and the slewing-system.
The lay-tower is equipped with two paralell E4.350 e-chains®.
This platform, which has been given the Name “Ampelmann”, is used on the open sea. It automatically compensates all wave movements, so that safe work can be done on oil platforms from a ship base. For this purpose, the platform is supported by several hydraulic cylinders. The energy supply to the platform is guaranteed by igus® triflex® R energy chains.
