Dutch maritime equipment manufacturer Huisman said it has been awarded a contract by China Merchants Heavy Industry (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd for the delivery of a 250mt knuckle boom crane and a 500mt towing winch, to be installed on the upgraded 14,000kW large cruise rescue vessel for Nanhai Rescue Bureau, part of the Ministry of Transport of the People's Republic of China.

The 250mt knuckle boom crane will be outfitted with an active heave compensation system, allowing the crane to operate at water depths of up to 3,000 meters. The main hoist winch will be located below deck to enhance the stability of vessel. The 500mt towing winch is designed with a double winch configuration which allows it to be used for towing as well as for lifting by the vessel's 350mt A-frame.

The knuckle boom crane and towing winch will both be manufactured at the Huisman Zhangzhou premises in China, and will be delivered in the third quarter of 2021 and first quarter of 2022.

The Nanhai Rescue Bureau carries out life-saving missions in waters around the world such as emergency response, firefighting and salvage operations, as well as oil spill detection, deep water exploration, and transportation of lifesaving equipment
