Husiman has delivered two Heavy Lift Mast Cranes (HLMC) to Spliethoff – consequently reaching a record of 100 delivered Mast Cranes.

The first one of its kind, built in 1984, is still performing today aboard BigLift Shipping’s heavy lift vessel Happy Buccaneer.

The two HLMCs installed on Brouwersgracht - Spliethoff’s new build heavy lift vessel - have a lifting capacity of 500mt each, making the vessel suitable for both heavy lift transportation and offshore installation. Huisman Mast Crane designs are characterised by their low weight, high capacity, optimisation of free deck space and vessel stability during (off)loading.

Arne Hubregtse, executive board member of Spliethoff Group said: “With our newbuilding vessels Brouwersgracht and Bloemgracht we will have eight heavy lift vessels equipped with Huisman Heavy Lift Mast Cranes in our fleet. By their excellent crane designs and resulting capabilities the Huisman cranes have often given us a competitive edge. We look forward to performing challenging projects with the 100th to the 103rd HLMC as well.”

David Roodenburg, CEO of Huisman added: “It’s a great honour to celebrate this wonderful milestone with Spliethoff and its group sister BigLift Shipping. Within 40 years, we have delivered our first HLMCs for the Happy Buccaneer and our 100th for Spliethoff’s latest addition to its fleet. The fact that the Happy Buccaneer’s cranes are still operational is a proof of the robust technology and extensive operational lifetime of this crane design. We hope that our cranes will continue to play an important role in Spliethoff Group’s success in the decades to come.”

In 1984, Huisman received the Entrepreneurs Award Heavy Lift Mast Cranes for the design of the 550mt Happy Buccaneer HLMCs. The full electric HLMC was considered an innovative change in the heavy lift industry.
