Huisman wins Japanese crane contract for wind turbine installation

The crane will be used for offshore wind turbine installation

The new contract follows an earlier transaction at the shipyard in which Huisman supplied a pedestal-mounted crane with lifting capacity of 800 tonnes for a self-elevating turbine installation platform. The latest crane will be built and delivered by Huisman China, and installed at the Japanese yard.  
The end clients are Japanese construction companies Oboyashi Corporation and TOA Corporation and the crane design will be adapted to meet their specific requirements. The contract is the first firm order concluded since Huisman entered into an agency agreement with Exeno Yamamizu Corporation, an arrangement that will enable the Dutch company to meet the needs of Japanese clients more effectively.  
Speaking about the new contract, Timon Ligterink, Huisman sales manager, said: “As a positive track record is highly important in the Japanese market, we are extremely happy with the continuing trust that Obayashi, TOA and JMU has expressed in Huisman. After our initial market entry in 2016, we now retain our 100% market share in the region for offshore wind turbine installation cranes with this second contract. By adapting our products to our client’s needs and living up to our promises to one of Japan’s most advanced shipyard, we establish ourselves as a reliable partner which is key to develop this new market.”

Dutch engineering and handling system provider, Huisman, has won a contract to provide Japan Marine United (JMU) Shipyard with a 1,000-tonne pedestal-mounted crane for offshore wind turbine installation in Japan.
