Huisman to deliver 1,000-tonne capacity crane

Huisman has secured a contract with Japan Marine United (JMU) for the delivery of a 1,000-tonne capacity pedestal-mounted crane for an offshore wind turbine installation vessel.

A 600-tonne capacity pedestal-mounted crane from Huisman was installed on GeoSea's vessel Neptune.

The unit will be built at Huisman China's facilities and will be installed at JMU’s shipyard. The end clients are Japanese construction companies Obayashi Corporation and TOA Corporation.

The crane design will be based on the 800-tonne capacity pedestal-mounted crane delivered to JMU for a self-elevating platform (SEP), but will be adapted to suit the specific requirements of Obayashi Corporation and TOA Corporation.
