Cammell Laird SWF Overhead Gantry Cranes

Technical Cranes Ltd have supplied 6 new SWF overhead gantry cranes to Cammell Laird.  These included two 15t swl cranes at 14m span, and two 50t swl cranes at 25m span.

Also two special 15t swl cranes were installed in the main fabrication hall, which has 47m and 48.8m spans in one of Europes largest width sheds.

The cranes were designed with a special bolted connection on the box girders for ease of transport and on site installations.

The cranes include full maintenance platforms and radio remote controls with back up pendants.

The manufacture of the special cambered box beams, bolted connection and maintenance platforms was carried out in our main Rotherham works, followed by full crane assembly and factory running tests prior to delivery to site.
