General – Offshore Mast Crane
Huisman has been awarded a contract from Subsea7 for the delivery of a 500mt Offshore Mast Crane.
The full electric crane will be installed on one of Subsea7’s pipelay vessels and will be deployed for deep water installations.
The 500mt Offshore Mast Crane will be equipped with a state-of-the-art passive and active heave compensation system on the main hoist to counter-act the vessel’s heave motion when landing a product onto the seabed. Huisman has upgraded its heave compensation system with a variety of new control modes to extend the operational window.
The crane will be built in Huisman’s production facility in Schiedam, the Netherlands.
The small rectangular footprint of this crane allows for easy integration with the vessel’s steel structure and direct installation of the crane on the stern, achieving a large effective outreach and reducing integration costs.
