Floating Crane

The floating crane has a capacity of up to 400 tons. A floating crane is a type of sea vessel with a fixed crane. The crane is towed in open seas and can maneuver and lift in sheltered waters. Floating cranes are particularly useful for moving cargo between ships and platforms as they can quickly move where needed. The crane’s mobility allows it to reach places that traditional cranes cannot, such as in shallow water or areas with a substrate that is too unstable to withstand the weight of a regular crane.

The floating crane is an A-frame sheer leg floating crane with a capacity of 400 tons at 45 meters. Equipped with a jib, the crane has a lifting capacity of 200 tons at a height of up to 76 meters. Taklift AS is now part of Crane Norway and covers a large area within work with floating cranes, and we are operative in Skagerak, from Germany up to Trondheim.

Suited for demanding projects

The crane’s ability to lift and maneuver heavy units makes it suitable for small and large projects. Our assignments with floating cranes often consist of assembly work of bridges and quays or transport of heavy objects. Floating cranes ensure the projects’ efficient implementation, as we can assemble the parts and then transport the finished product. The crane’s ability to move very slowly enables precise work when carrying out assembly tasks. A floating crane can be the solution for projects where the surface is not suitable for other cranes. Floating cranes also retrieve vessels and equipment that have sunk.

Crane Norway has extensive experience and expertise in complicated lifting operations – on the water as well. Do you need a floating crane for assembly work or other projects? Feel free to contact us for more information about our services or to order floating cranes for projects.
