3000 Ton Capacity Ship-Mounted Revolving Crane for the North Sea Oil Industry 770781

To meet the demands of continually increasing energy requirements, the off-shore operations to explore and recover petroleum deposits from beneath the ocean bottom are taking place under increasingly difficult environmental conditions. This has led to the development of types of equipment well beyond the possibilities or the imaginable future requirements of twenty years ago. When conditions require the fabrication of off-shore platforms on land, to be floated to the erection site, lifted and placed as a single unit of up to 3000 tons, revolving cranes capable of performing such lifts become a necessary part of that development.
