Largest floating crane in Poland comes into service at Marine Projects Ltd

By Curious

To enhance its flexibility and production capabilities Marine Projects Ltd. has purchased a self-propelled sheerlegs type floating crane and named it CONRAD CONSUL.

The crane after an overhaul and modifications is being introduced into service.

The 400T lifting capacity makes it the strongest floating crane available in Poland.

The crane is fitted with two Voith-Schneider cycloidal propellers assuring it the highly precise manoeuvrability, a very important asset during the difficult installation lifting works.

The crane will be generally used to serve the production activities at Marine Projects Ltd., however it will be also available to outside customers for work in the very busy Gdansk-Gdynia harbour area for a separate fee.

Technical characteristics:

 Length o.a.  44.82 m
 Breadth  21.00 m
 Depth  3.70 m
 Draught    2.00 m
 Lifting Capacity  400 T
