Dreggen in Norway reports that it has delivered a gantry-type traveling slewing deck crane with operator cabin to the Dutch shipyard IHC Holland NV for a new vessel for use in China on a vessel owned by Guangzhou Dredging Company.
The span between the legs of the gantry is 11.2m, the height of the complete crane is 13.4m and its total weight is almost 70 tons.
The crane is installed to facilitate repairs and maintenance of the dredging installation and for handling of heavy lifts of up to 17.5 tons. The outreach of the crane is 19m, sufficient to replace the drag head.
The crane will travel along the vessel at a stepless speed from 0-10m/min.
