Delivering step changing solutions
We are Huisman. We design and manufacture heavy construction equipment for the world’s leading companies in the renewable energy, oil and gas, civil, naval and entertainment markets. Our products range from Cranes, Pipelay Equipment, Drilling Equipment and Winches, to Vessel Designs and Specials.
The history of Huisman is one of setting new industry standards. Of making impact, since 1929. With step changing technical solutions that vary from stand-alone components to highly engineered integrated systems. From concept to installation and lifetime support.
In these times of transition, our passionate workforce and worldwide production, service & sales facilities make us equipped for impact.
To improve the efficiency of offshore wind turbine installation, Huisman developed the Wind Turbine Shuttle (WTS): a dynamically positioned, fast sailing (14 knots) SWATH - Small Water plane Area Twin Hull - type installation vessel which can carry and install two wind turbines in one piece.
The Univeral Quick Connector is a smart, modular and robust clamp which is mounted inside the crane’s lower block. It allows to lift objects through a direct connection, without intermediate rigging and totally hands-free. No need for rigging increases safety and workability.
2x 10,000 tub mounted cranes
Huisman developed 2x 10,000mt Tub Mounted Cranes for Heerema’s Sleipnir, a semi-submersible crane vessel. The new build 2x 10,000mt TMC Cranes are the world’s largest Tub Cranes. The two cranes are able to lift 10,000mt at 48m radius in offshore conditions.
The Huisman Innovation Tower (HIT) is a 90m high drill tower, with the ability to simulate dynamical vessel movements. The HIT is located at our quayside in Schiedam and is used to demonstrate Huisman drilling equipment, to develop and test future equipment and systems and for the training of operators and Huisman staff.
Huisman actively employs the 3D printing technique ‘Wire & Arc Additive Manufacturing’ (WAAM) to produce mid-size to large components with high grade tensile steel. An important benefit for larger crane hooks is the significant reduction in delivery time at a cost that competes with forgings and castings, and a more consistent level of quality.
"What I like so much about Huisman is that there are many opportunities here. You really have the opportunity to do things that you want to do. I can grow my career in the direction I want it to grow."
