ZHANGZHOU, China – Huisman has delivered the 100th crane built at its production facility in Zhangzhou.
The 1,500-metric ton (1,653-ton) heavy-lift mast crane will be one of two installed onboard Jumbo’s heavy-lift vessel Fairmaster, providing a dual-lift capacity of up to 3,000 metric tons (3,307 tons).
It is also the fourth heavy-lift mast crane constructed for Jumbo at the yard.
Jumbo’s director commerce & operations, Twan Voogt, said the latest delivery is “equipped with state of the art technology focused on improved safety and operational flexibility…The cranes are characterized by their superior load curve, small footprint and low own construction weight.”
Huisman China, in Fujian Province (Xiamen area), has been operating since April 2007. It has a 380-m (1,247-ft) long quayside, a Huisman-design 2,400-metric ton (2,645-ton) traveling quayside crane and direct deepwater access, making it suitable for loading and installation of heavy steel constructions onboard large offshore vessels.
