ALE Introduces SK10,000 Crane

Record Lifting Capacity

Project cargo specialist ALE has announced the introduction of its latest heavy-lift crane, the SK10,000.
With capacity to lift 10,000 tonnes, the new crane is the world’s largest land-based crane, according to ALE, and will enable “new levels of project efficiencies in schedule certainty, reduced risk, increased safety and cost reduction.” Designed on a modular architecture, the crane offers outreach with jib of up to 200 meters and ground bearing pressure below 25 tonnes per square meter.

“With our innovations in lifting super-heavy modules for projects such as FPSO and FLNG construction, ALE offers important advantages in terms of managing safety and minimising project schedule and costs … the introduction of the SK10,000 takes this to a whole new level,” said Ronald Hoefmans, ALE’s group technical director.

Headquartered in Staffordshire in the UK, ALE provides heavy-lift services for a range of industries. The firm has more than 30 regional offices around the world and focuses on heavy-lift projects in oil and gas, civil, nuclear, offshore, renewables, petrochemical, ports, marine, minerals and metals and mining.
