ALE said that the crane would enable new levels of project efficiencies in for the lifting of ultra-heavy modules, particularly in FPSO and FLNG construction.

According to the company, demand for the lifting of larger and heavier modules is growing and the SK10,000 will allow modules to be rotated, aligned, and installed directly onto ships’ hulls, advancing industry capabilities for both lift weights and project efficiency.

The SK10,000 utilizes the same design as the company’s AL.SK350 crane. The new crane offers an outreach of up to 200 meters and ground bearing pressure below 25 tonnes per square meter. The launch of the crane is set for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Ronald Hoefmans, ALE’s group technical director, said: “Our innovations in lifting super-heavy modules for projects such as FPSO and FLNG construction offer important advantages in terms of managing safety and minimizing project schedule and costs.

“The introduction of the SK10,000 means that individual lifts of up to 10,000 tonnes are now possible, allowing customers to build larger modules more efficiently in fabrication yards and access a highly mobile and flexible solution to lift them.”
