The new designs for wind turbine installation cranes are based on the company's drive to add value to the market's existing technologies; the customised crane range includes pedestal and ringer cranes for mainly jack-up ships.

In addition to the low construction weight, small footprint and minor tail swing of the existing Huisman cranes, additional value-added features are the extensive lifting height, the small operational minimum radius and the possibility to install the crane around the leg of the jack-up.

Two 750 tonne cranes, planned to be used for a large wind turbine installation project, are currently under construction for Master Marine.
