Mammoet ups its ringer crane capacity

Mammoet has introduced its 18,000-tonne capacity MSG1000 ring crane concept.

Based on its MSG80 and PTC range of cranes, the concept will be discussed with the company’s main customers to explore how its functionality can be tailored to market needs, said Mammoet.
 
Currently, Mammoet operates ten PTC cranes, featuring a reach of up to 256 m with the main boom plus jib.
 
However, Jacques Stoof, global director, market development and innovation at Mammoet, explained: “We see from developments in, for example, modular construction, there is a growing need for cranes with significantly more lifting capacity than the market has seen thus far.
 
“While we have left the basic concept of the PTC intact, we have enhanced its capacity. Among other features, a double boom and strand jacks in combination with winch-based hoisting significantly increases its capacity."
