MacGregor understands that high-performance, high-precision cranes are the basic requirement for fast and effective bulk handling.
GLB electro-hydraulic deck cranes are intended for use on bulk carriers. They work in some of the toughest conditions, so a robust, reliable design is essential.
MacGregor bulker crane designs are based on our long experience and are backed up by unrivaled global service support and a proven track record of more than 13,000 crane deliveries worldwide over the past 50 years.
The crane offers multiple benefits:
Excellent positioning performance to reduce time in port
Prepared for grab equipment
Closed loop hydraulic system
Stepless and independent crane control with hoisting, luffing and slewing motions
All machinery is weather-protected inside crane housing
Closed Loop System
All MacGregor hydraulic cranes are built upon the latest closed-loop hydraulic design.
Benefits of a closed-loop hydraulic system:
All motions are available at the same time at full speed and load
Speed control more accurate compared to an open-loop system
Regenerative power will be obtained at lowering of load and jib
Fewer losses than an open loop system
Less cooling needed
