Heavy-lift firm shipper Jumbo Maritime has hired engineering firm Huisman Equipment to design and construct two mast cranes for its new DP2 heavy-lift crane vessel.
The formal investment decision calls for a main crane with 2,500-tonne capacity, featuring triple hoist and an active heave compensation, or AHC, auxiliary block. A second subsea crane will have capacity for 400 tonnes and feature an AHC main hoist.
“This year Jumbo is proud to celebrate 50 years in business. This also marks the continuation of our long lasting relationship with our partners in Huisman. Our new HLCV, equipped with these cutting edge cranes, enables Jumbo to further step-up, scale-up and diversify into the global offshore energy market,” said Michael Kahn, managing director of Jumbo.
Based in Schiedam in the Netherlands, Jumbo provides heavy-lift and project cargo services worldwide and operates a fleet of heavy-lift vessels with lifting capacity from 500 tonnes up to 3,000 tonnes.
