Quayside Cranes

Quayside Cranes

The worldwide ambitions for offshore wind energy involve complex logistics operations in the installation phase. 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.

Convertible Pre-Piling Template

Convertible Pre-Piling Template

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. Therefore, pre-piling templates have to meet the specific dimensions and geometry that each offshore wind farm demands. Investing in tailored pre-piling templates for single-use is very cost-inefficient. Huisman introduces the Convertible Pre-Piling Template, an economic and reliable solution for accurate piling.

Motion Compensated Platform

Motion Compensated Platform

The construction of offshore windfarms in the US is regulated by the Jones Act. The transport of wind turbine components from a US port to the field using an international installation vessel requires the use of a US feeder vessel. Although this is a Jones Act-compliant solution for this kind of logistical challenge, it does require that components need to be lifted from a moving vessel. Huisman introduces the Motion Compensated Platform to ensure that components can be transferred quickly and safely from a feeder vessel.

Wind Turbine Maintenance

Wind Turbine Maintenance

Huisman's Foldable Offshore Crane is designed specifically for Operations & Maintenance (O&M)works on offshore wind turbines. It allows operators to reach nacelles at a height of over 150m above the WTGs transition piece. The major advantage of this crane is that due to its foldable boom, the crane can easily be integrated in small - and cost efficient - jack-up vessels. Therefore reducing cost for offshore maintenance. In addition, the geometry of the boom allows for a very low construction weight.
