Huisman recently introduced its optimized knuckle boom crane series, designed specifically for the offshore subsea construction market. It has a lifting capacity of 100mt and features a deepwater winch and active heave compensation, and can be delivered fully electric, with patented electrical integration with the vessel’s battery banks.

This contract represents the company’s first with Coastal International Marine, part of the Coastal Contracts Bhd. Group, and second for this series as it had received an order in March from a Japanese construction company for a similar 100mt crane to be integrated into its latest cable-lay and construction vessel.

Since introducing our improved and competitive Huisman Knuckle Boom Cranes, we have had productive discussions with them, and we are delighted to welcome them as a new client,” said Timon Ligterink, Commercial Director APAC of Huisman.
