Special Projects

The Huisman equipment, varying from stand-alone products to highly engineered and integrated systems is fully designed and manufactured under own management, from concept to delivery. Our Special Projects range and experience is varied and includes a broad range of working steel constructions with drive systems. Examples are one-off and custom-built solutions for deepwater lowering, skidding, salvage, trenching and rock dumping.
