Huisman has entered the port and logistics market. The Dutch company has been awarded an order from Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT) for a series of Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs) for efficient handling and buffering of containers.

The ASCs feature a fully automated process for handling and buffering containers, providing a reliable solution for enhanced operational efficiency, required for 24/7 operational time.

The diversification in port automation underscores Huisman‘s commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions across diverse sectors by utilising its in-house engineering and production expertise. This varies from high-tech automation and motion compensation systems to large complex structures.
