Cranes

Our in-house developed and manufactured cranes are used within the industry for over 30 years and have become a standard in the design and construction of heavy lift cranes.

 

We develop and build a wide range of both on and offshore cranes, varying in size and type. Our crane designs are characterised by increased workability and functionality for the owner. Increased vessel stability, extended weather window and larger free deck space are examples of the advantages our cranes have to offer. Besides a range of standardised cranes with options, we have extensive experience in providing tailor made cranes. In either case, our solutions have proven to be cost effective in total cost of ownership. 

 

Huisman cranes are designed and built with safety as a number one priority, in accordance with international standards and are certified by recognised authorities such as LRS, DNV and ABS.

 

In-house Testing

High quality is key in all Huisman equipment provided. With all engineering and production disciplines in-house, multi-disciplinary projects are adequetely handled which makes us less dependent on subcontractors. Components used in our cranes are carefully selected and are thoroughly tested throughout the production proces and again before installation into the crane. The crane itself undergoes an extensive Factory Acceptance Test before delivery to our clients. Up to a certain capacity the crane can be load tested, even under simulated conditions, at our workshop.  

 

Services

Our facilities in the Netherlands, China and Brazil (planned) have quay sides with access to open sea. This allows us to offer installation, commissioning and (load)testing of our equipment, substantially reducing overall vessel construction time and risk and time for the yard and the owner. Using our Huisman training facility with simulator, we can offer education and training to support our clients in operating and maintaining the crane in the most effective and safe way.  

Mast Cranes

In 1984, we introduced the Mast Crane in the heavy lifting industry. Ever since, this innovative crane has had a leading position in this field, particularly for the use onboard heavy lift vessels.  Over the years, we have delivered Mast Cranes with a lifting capacity up to 5,000mt, with concept designs for higher capacities being developed.

 

We have a strong reputation for two specific types of Mast Cranes:
