In this paper, a new type of the offshore wind turbine installation equipment is proposed, which has 6 sets of intelligent legs. Each intelligent leg consists of two-UPS and one-UP. Based on the theory of the parallel mechanism, the mechanism of this offshore wind turbine installation equipment with 6 sets of intelligent legs is constructed. We take a set of the intelligent leg for analysis and conducted kinematic analysis and dynamic analysis on the offshore wind turbine installation equipment. Finally, by studying the fuzzy reliability of the kinematic accuracy of a branch, the reliability model of the whole mechanism of the installation equipment combined with the characteristics of installation process is established, and the calculation of the fuzzy reliability of the kinematic accuracy of the whole mechanism is carried out.
