Installation of the new Huisman China 2,400mt Quay Crane

Huisman China has completed the installation of a 2,400 tonne capacity quayside crane at its Zhangzhou (Fujian) fabrication yard at Xiamen port.

The quayside crane has two main lifting configurations: a heavy lift configuration, capable of lifting 2,400 tonnes at 30 metres outreach (maximum lifting height of 100 m) and an extended reach configuration, capable of placing a 200 tonne load at 90 m outreach (maximum lifting height of 140 m). The crane can travel along the 380 m long quayside and can travel this distance with a load of 2,400 tonnes in its hooks.

The crane, named the Skyhook, has been specially designed and fabricated for Huisman China’s Zhangzhou yard, which has direct deepwater access to the Taiwan Strait.
