Huisman Delivers Deepwater Knuckle Boom Crane for Coastal International Marine Inc.

Huisman announced its first contract with Coastal International Marine Inc. for the delivery of a deepwater Knuckle Boom Crane (KBC). Coastal International Marine Inc., part of the Malaysia-based Coastal Contracts Bhd. Group, is a global provider of oil and gas services and energy infrastructure solutions.

The Knuckle Boom Crane ordered by Coastal International Marine has a lifting capacity of 100mt and is equipped with a deepwater winch and active heave compensation. This contract marks Huisman’s second for their optimized KBC series, following a similar order from a Japanese construction firm in March. That crane is set to be integrated into a new cable-laying and construction vessel.

Huisman’s optimized KBC series is specially designed for the offshore subsea construction market. These cranes align with the latest trends for offshore construction vessels, focusing on enhanced energy efficiency, advanced automation, and improved safety features. The cranes can optionally be delivered fully electric, featuring patented electrical integration with the ship’s battery banks.

Alice Ng, Director of Coastal International Marine Inc., expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration: “We are delighted to have chosen Huisman to provide the Knuckle Boom Crane for our urgent project. With Huisman’s impressive track record, we are confident that the crane will be delivered on time with the best design and quality. We look forward to more opportunities to work with them in the future.”

Timon Ligterink, Commercial Director APAC at Huisman, echoed this sentiment: “We are grateful for the trust and the award of this contract by Coastal International Marine. Since the introduction of our improved and competitive Huisman Knuckle Boom Cranes, we have had productive discussions with them. We are pleased to welcome them as a new client. This energy-efficient and active heave compensated Knuckle Boom Crane enables Coastal International Marine Inc. to serve its customers reliably and efficiently. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with them through this project.”

To ensure a swift delivery, the crane and winch will be manufactured in Asia, catering to the urgent needs of Coastal International Marine Inc.
