Huisman Innovation Tower (HIT)
At this very moment Huisman is expanding its testing and commissioning facilities in Schiedam for new drilling equipment. A new 90m high drill tower, capable of handling 55 m (180 ft) stands and 46 m (150 ft) riser and with the ability to simulate dynamical vessel movements, is nearing completion at the Huisman Schiedam quayside. The Huisman Innovation Tower (HIT) will be used to demonstrate Huisman drilling equipment, to develop and test future equipment and systems and for the training of operators and Huisman staff.
