Oil and gas
The wind power industry is an important customer and user of Crane Norway Group’s heavy-duty, specialised equipment. The construction of large windmill parks requires careful planning of logistics, transport and lifting operations to achieve an efficient and cost-saving concept for the customer.
Crane Norway Group has the machinery, equipment and personnel to handle critical transport and lifting operations for the wind power industry.
Crane Norway Group has extensive experience in planning and executing lifting operations.
Our current fleet includes cranes with lifting capacities of up to 750 tonnes, which can handle most of the lifting operations carried out in the Nordic countries. Otherwise, there is no limit to the jobs we can perform.
Heavy lifts are normally lifting operations that are planned well in advance, and generally involve a certain amount of engineering work. Thorough planning ensures that the lifts can be performed quickly and efficiently, without unforeseen situations, which ensures predictability for our customers
Crane Norway Group has provided services to the foundation and construction industry for decades and it is still one of our major business segments.
Our cranes and personnel are always out on large and small foundation jobs across the country, working both on barges and on land.
We can offer a wide range tracked heavy-duty machines with capacities of 60 tonnes and more. Our machines are specially designed for dynamic operations and have heavy-duty motors, winches and belts.
For specialised construction activities, we have developed good practices and procedures based on years of experience. This allows us to uncover risks and helps us to work both safely and efficiently.
With our wide range of hydraulic and wire-mechanical grabbers, we are prepared to dig out all kinds of earth, both on land and at sea. With grabber suspended from a crane, depth is no challenge and we can perform digging operations with a great reach.
To improve soil settlement, the fill and the underlying soil can be compacted with drop weights before construction. Soil compaction reduces the pore volume and increases soil settlement resistance. Soil compaction is a good alternative to other foundations for new buildings and allows foundations to be set directly on the fill.
From experience, we know that fill will settle around 5 to 10% during compaction, depending on the energy used and fill qualities.
To achieve the desired depth effect, calculations must be made to find the correct amount of energy, which depends on the plumb weight and drop height.
With our machines, we are ready to take on soil compaction assignments with weights of 25 tonnes from heights of 20 metres.
In many cases, mobile cranes are useful for setting steel cores, sheet piles and concrete piles. We offer broad knowledge and experience from such jobs and have equipment specifically designed for harsh working conditions.
