Vessel Designs

In addition to our core business of designing and manufacturing cranes, drilling equipment, pipelay systems and winches, Huisman also offers complete in-house solutions in vessel design.

The in-house vessel design capability allows us to achieve a highly integrated and fully optimised vessel design.  The drilling equipment on a drillship for example, forms the integral part of the vessel lay-out. Design of this equipment is closely linked to the development of the vessel design. The vessel is virtually designed around the dedicated equipment.


The Huisman Naval Architectural Department is responsible for the concept and basic design of different types of vessels including drill ships, mobile offshore drilling units, crane barges, pipe laying vessels, construction vessels, and vessels for the wind turbine installation industry.
