Huisman receives second order in Japan

Huisman recently signed a contract with Japan Marine United Shipyard (JMU) for the delivery of a 1,000mt SWL Pedestal Mounted Crane (PMC) for offshore wind turbine installation in Japan.

It is the second contract from JMU. In 2016, Japanese Penta-Ocean Construction company awarded JMU a contract for the delivery of a Self Elevating Platform (SEP) including Huisman’s 800mt Pedestal Mounted Crane for offshore wind turbine installation.

The new order is for the delivery of a 1,000mt PMC. The end clients are Japanese construction companies Obayashi Corporation and TOA Corporation. The crane builds on the track record of the 800mt crane but will be adapted to suit the specific requirements of Obayashi Corporation and TOA Corporation. The crane will be built and delivered at Huisman China, installation will take place at JMU’s shipyard in Japan.

This has also been the first project that resulted in a firm order since Huisman’s cooperation with its Japanese agent Exeno Yamamizu Corporation.Timon Ligterink (Sales Manager Huisman) comments: “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 have 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 shipyards, we establish ourselves as a reliable partner, which is key to develop this new market.”
