Judge rules on Mammoet and Huisman IP case

By Alex Dahm04 May 2022

A Dutch court ruled on 28 April 2022 that Huisman had not infringed Mammoet’s intellectual property rights over the design of a new 3,000 tonne capacity super heavy lift ring crane, based on the Huisman Compact Ringer (CRC) series design, ordered by BMS in Denmark.

Paul van Gelder, Mammoet CEO, issued the following statement:

In February 2022 Mammoet alleged that Huisman was possibly infringing on its intellectual property rights with Huisman’s 3,000 tonne capacity ringer crane contract with BMS. The suggestion of IP infringement is unsubstantiated and therefore unlawful against Huisman. The Provisions Judge of the District Court of Midden Nederland (the Netherlands), in a judgment of 28 April 2022, ordered Mammoet to share this rectification.
