We are Huisman. We design, manufacture and service 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, Offshore Wind Tools, Pipelay and Drilling Equipment to specials.
Controlling the movements of the relatively light blades of a turbine when suspended from a crane, has proven to be an installation challenge due to wind load. Huisman and Siemens Gamesa developed the Travelling Load Stabilising System, for universal application in heavy lifting cranes.
To improve the efficiency of offshore windfarm installation, Huisman has developed the Windfarm Installation Vessel (WIV); a semi-submersible vessel with a 3D motion compensated WTG installation system.
The worldwide ambitions for offshore wind energy involve complex logistics operations in the installation phase of an offshore wind farm. Marshalling ports and large quaysides with weight-carrying capacity are critical to the assembly, storage and deployment of large wind turbines. This requires increasing lifting height and capacity. Huisman offers flexible solutions for any work site or environment.
With offshore wind farms being built in ever deeper waters, there is a growing demand for jacket foundations to support the increasingly larger Wind Turbine Generators. These jacket foundations come in different designs to accommodate the varying conditions and parameters of the wind farm locations. Huisman introduces the Convertible Pre-Piling Template, an economic and reliable solution for accurate piling.
Rigging operations can take up valuable time of your consecutive offshore operations. With the Universal Quick Connector, Huisman offers a safe and efficient solution to reduce your cycle time and mitigate the safety risks of people involved in changing installation tools.
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.
