, designing and engineering heavy lifting equipment and special transport systems
Huisman-Itrec is a unique combination of craftsmanship and design. Huisman, founded in 1929, is from origin producer of hoisting equipment for cargo ships. Itrec started in 1979 with designing and engineering heavy lifting equipment and special transport systems. The close co-operation between Huisman and Itrec resulted in the merging into one organisation in 1982.
In 2001 Huisman-Itrec took over Vekoma Rides, a Dutch company with a long and worldwide history of making roller coasters and other leisure equipment for theme parks.
In the early eighties Huisman-Itrec developed the Heavy Lift Mast Crane. These cranes are now a well-known and accepted standard in the world of heavy shipping and are globally used for transport of heavy cargo. The largest one built so far has a lifting capacity of 550t SWL. At the moment five Heavy Lift Mast Cranes of 800t SWL are under construction.
In 1986 Huisman-Itrec entered the offshore market. The obtained knowledge and expertise is also used for Offshore Pedestal Cranes and Offshore Mast Cranes with lifting capacity up to 400t. New techniques, such as application of secondary controlled hydraulics, active heave compensation and passive wire tensioning have been developed and successfully applied. Complete new products, which have been engineered and manufactured are for example: modular flexlay systems, pipe- and cable lay equipment, modular pipe and cable tensioners, umbilical handling systems, stone dumping installations, subsea equipment, ROVs, control and monitoring equipment, load measuring systems, etc. These products have been innovated to meet the special demands of the offshore market, which resulted in the realisation and supply of tailor made solutions for turnkey projects.
