Huisman has received its first order for their new production facility in Brazil. The new order includes three sets of five cranes, which will be manufactured as soon as construction of the Brazilian production facility is completed in 2014.
The three sets of cranes are scheduled for delivery between 2015 and 2017.
The order includes three identical sets of cranes for the new build vessels the “Cassino”, “Curumim” and “Salinas”.
The cranes are multipurpose, and can be used for unloading of supply vessels, pipe handling, offshore construction work, and subsea installation. The first set of cranes will be installed on the “Cassino” and will be delivered in 2015.
Huisman opened an engineering, sales, and service office in Rio de Janeiro to locally support the South American market in 2008.
Construction began on this new facility in 2012 in the city of Navegantes. Navegantes is located alongside the river Itajai-Açu in the state Santa Catarina, a state in the southern part of Brazil bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
