Jan De Nul and Huisman co-develop Universal Quick Connector
Huisman and Jan De Nul Group announce today that they have joined forces for the heavy lift equipment on board of Jan De Nul’s Next Generation offshore installation vessels Les Alizés and Voltaire. Upon the order of both vessels in 2019, Jan De Nul Group awarded the contract for the engineering, construction and delivery of two highly innovative cranes to Huisman.
For these cranes, which will be the largest in their class, Huisman developed the Universal Quick Connector (UQC) based on the expertise of Jan De Nul Group’s operational and engineering team. The result is a ground-breaking innovation, resulting in a major step change in safer offshore hoisting activities.
