OOS Serooskerke will be the first vessel ever in history on which a 3D-printed crane hook is installed.
The Huisman 3D-printed hooks are the future of crane hooks due to the excellent results obtained from comprehensive testing and analysis. After load testing at more than double the Safe Working Load, the 3D printed hook was certified for offshore use according ABS standards. This is an important step in determining regulations for 3D-printed products for the maritime and offshore industry.
The 36t Service Cranes on both OOS Serooskerke and OOS Walcheren will be fitted with 3D-printed hooks.
