ALE announce plans for 8,000t heavy lifting crane

ALE announce their latest heavy lifting solution, the AL.SK700, which will be part of the Innovation Series.

By combining two AL.SK cranes, the largest capacity land based cranes in the world into one heavy lifting system, ALE’s new AL.SK700 will be able to lift loads of up to 8,000t with a load moment of 708,000tm. The system will operate with two 4,000t winch systems and two hook blocks.

The AL.SK700 is ideally suited to lift super-heavy modules found in the offshore and shipbuilding industry.

This innovative double boom system will be operated from one control room by a single operator. It will be fully containerised for shipping globally so can be deployed to all locations and across different market sectors. “At present, our revolutionary AL.SK350 has the lifting capacity of 5,000t and a load moment of 354,000tm,” explains Giovanni Alders, Sales Manager ALE – Global Projects Division.

“We are receiving requests to lift up to 7,000t, particularly in the shipbuilding and offshore sector with the integration of heavier FPSOs and LNG modules onto new build hulls. We are always looking for innovative ways to solve our clients’ challenges and reduce project schedules and money spent. By joining two cranes together into the AL.SK700, we can lift loads weighing 8,000t, which has never been previously achievable. This highly mobile solution will give clients the opportunity to build super-heavy modules and structures in any fabrication yard around the world.”AL.SK700 Image 1
