Huisman launches 700mt Travelling Quayside Crane for handling wind turbine components
Huisman is committed to driving the growth of renewable energy and making heavy project logistics more sustainable. With this 700mt Travelling Quayside Crane, the load-out process of offshore wind turbine components can take place significantly faster compared to the regular methods that involve crawler cranes, or a tandem-lifting by two cranes with a capacity around 200mt to 300mt.
The new Quayside Crane has been designed fully electric, allowing for a direct connection to the quayside power grid. This allows regenerative energy to be directed back into the utility grid, thus drastically limiting the net energy consumption of the crane. Huisman has been a frontrunner in the electrification of heavy lift cranes to optimise energy efficiency since 1984.
