Port crane / floating
Drydocks World owns the Middle East’s largest Floating Crane. It is a shear leg design with a 2000 tons lifting capacity on 30m outreach and 70m elevation.
The total load is distributed between four hooks, the 12m distance between hooks reduces requirements for spreaders. The unique design enables it to lift heavy slender objects with actual length higher than the hook elevation. Many heavy lift operations are for ship and FPSO conversions, jacket and topside installations at the shipyard. The Crane is also available for heavy lift projects in the entire Middle East. Offshore, Port and Bridge construction are typical projects, which can benefit from having access to a crane of the capacity.
The shipyard has an experienced group of heavy lifting experts who operate the new floating crane and calculate and technically evaluate lifting projects.
The Floating Crane is certified by DNV. The Crane is towed to operation location and is maneuvered by an anchor winch system.
