Huisman reaches 100 Mast Crane track record

With the delivery of two Heavy Lift Mast Cranes (HLMC) for Spliethoff, Huisman has reached a track record of 100 Mast Cranes. The first one of its kind, built in 1984, is still performing excellently today aboard BigLift Shipping’s heavy lift vessel Happy Buccaneer.

David Roodenburg, CEO of Huisman: “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.”
