Huisman will upgrade the Offshore Mast Crane on board the Aegir, owned by Heerema Marine Contractors. This significant project will enhance the second main hoist capacity from 2000 mt to an impressive 3200 mt at a height of 110 metres.

The upgraded crane for one of the world’s largest monohull crane vessels will feature a fixed jib section and a robust 3200 mt lower block and hook, providing Heerema with the advanced lifting capabilities required to excel in their upcoming projects. The upgrade will allow the Aegir to install large jacket foundations.

Previous upgrade

The Aegir vessel, originally equipped with a 4000 mt Offshore Mast Crane by Huisman in 2013, has been a testament to the enduring quality and adaptability of Huisman’s technical solutions. In 2020, Huisman successfully upgraded the lifting capacity of the main hoist to 5000 mt.

David Roodenburg, CEO of Huisman: ‘We are honoured to once again collaborate with Heerema on this milestone upgrade for the Aegir vessel. This project reaffirms our commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions to our clients, making their operations more efficient, and strengthening them in their current and future business.’
