Manitowoc: Significant Developments (18-06-2019)
Manitowoc's new innovations at bauma included the biggest Potain topless crane, 3 new Grove all-terrain cranes, the mobile Potain Hup self-erecting crane, and 2 Grove rough-terrain cranes.
Manitowoc also launched an impressive new unit in the five-axle category and two new three-axle models. With its 78.5 m boom, the GMK5250XL-1 has the longest main boom of any five-axle all-terrain crane and combines that with the best lifting capabilities in the industry. As with all Grove all-terrain cranes it features Megatrak suspension and the Twin-Lock boom pinning system. It is also available with the MAXbase variable outrigger function for added versatility on jobsites.
Another innovation at Manitowoc booth was Potain's first mobile Hup self-erecting crane Hup M 28-22 which is the third model from the groundbreaking Hup self-erecting crane range but the first to prioritize mobility. The new design provides best in class compactness, and a length of only 11.5 m (38 ft) when folded, enabling work in narrow, restricted job sites, as well as making it easy to transport from site to site.
Hup M 28-22 also features the most advanced transport equipment with double steering axles. It has a 28 m jib and features 16 configurations, which is unique to this category of self-erecting cranes, enabling it to be easily adapted for a range of job site applications. The crane has a maximum capacity of 2.2 t and can lift 850 kg (1874 lbs) at its 28 m (92 ft) jib end.
In the three-axle category, the GMK3060L sets new standards of excellence and includes a powerful, seven-section MEGAFORM boom with 48 m of main boom and a maximum tip height of 65 m when working with its full jib. Next in line is the new GMK3050-2, an update of Grove's long-running three-axle GMK3050-1. It offers a 40 m main boom, fast operating speeds and a single counterweight configuration for ease of use. Manitowoc also showed the GMK4090 and the GMK6300L-1, both of which were launched during the past 18 months.
The new Potain MDT 809, the largest topless crane, marked a significant development from the industry leader. While delivering unprecedented lift capacity and reach, the new crane boasts an advanced design that provides reduced operating costs and easier assembly for owners.
At bauma, Manitowoc also presented Grove rough-terrain cranes - the 100-ton capacity GRT8100 and the 51-ton capacity GRT655L, manufactured at their factory in Niella Tanaro, Italy, and designed to better serve customers in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
Manitowoc has greatly expanded its service and support offerings; it has released two apps that help crane owners on job sites. The first is the "Manitowoc Diagnostic Code App" that helps users diagnose technical issues with their cranes. The second app is a free "Manitowoc Boom Length Selector App" that helps crane operators and owners to quickly and easily determine the overall boom and jib length combination required for a lift. Manitowoc is the first manufacturer in the crane industry to release a smartphone app of this kind. Manitowoc has also been increasing its telematics capabilities for Potain users. With the Crane Star Diag service, tower crane customers can now access vital crane data from laptops or smartphones.

Construction Of The World’s Largest Crane Vessel Has Been Completed (15-06-2019)
SembCorp Marine in Singapore has finished building the 20,000 tonne capacity SSCV Sleipnir for Heerema Marine Contractors. The world record-beating crane ship is now afloat and has been christened. It is 220 metres long by 102 metres wide and carries a pair of turret cranes each rated to lift 10,000 tonnes, which can work in tandem or individually.
The revolving cranes built by Huisman will lift their 10,000 tonne maximum load to a radius of 48 metres. Capacity is still 7,000 tonnes at 62 metres radius and 4,000 tonnes at 82 metres. Maximum radius is 102 metres. Even the auxiliary hoist lifts 2,500 tonnes to 60 metres radius. Also on board is a pedestal mounted lattice boom crane lifting 70 tonnes at a 12 metre radius. Up to 400 people can be accommodated. Power is from 12 engines which can run on either low sulphur marine gas oil (MGO) or liquified natural gas (LNG). Each engine is rated at 8 MW, giving a combined total of 96 MW. They are grouped three each in four engine rooms.
Heerema will use Sleipnir all over the world to install and remove jackets, topsides, foundations and other structures for the offshore oil and gas industry. Contracts already signed include installation of the Leviathan topsides in the Mediterranean Sea, installing and removing Tyra jackets and topsides in the Danish North Sea, and removing the Brae B jackets and topsides in the North Sea off the UK coast. Wind turbine installation will be another application for Sleipnir where it will be able to make full use of its 175 metre lifting height.
Commenting on his new world record-holder, Pieter Heerema, Heerema Marine Contractors chairman of the board, said, “I am immensely proud that Heerema Marine Contractors is again taking things further with the introduction of our new semi-submersible crane vessel. Sleipnir scores several firsts in the industry: It is the largest crane vessel yet built; it has the strongest pair of revolving cranes; and it’s also the world’s first crane vessel with dual-fuel engines running on MGO and LNG, dramatically reducing harmful emissions. Sleipnir’s innovative capabilities will place Heerema even firmer at the forefront of developments in the offshore oil, gas and wind energy industry for both installations and decommissioning.”
Sleipnir will now leave for sea trials before delivery to Heerema
