Marine Projects adds floating crane

June 19 - To enhance its flexibility and production capabilities, Poland's Marine Projects has purchased a self-propelled sheerleg-type floating crane from the Dutch company Tenwolde Transport & Repair and renamed it Conrad Consul.

The crane has undergone an overhaul and modifications and is now being introduced into service.

Its 400-tonne lifting capacity makes it the strongest floating crane available in Poland, says Marine Projects.

The crane is fitted with two Voith-Schneider cycloidal propellers providing precise manoeuvrability, a very important asset during the difficult installation lifting works.

The crane will be generally used to serve the production activities at Marine Projects, however it will be also available for external customers to hire, as was demonstrated by its first job under its new owners when it loaded two generators on Russia's North Western Shipping's mini bunker, Sormovskiy 3067, for delivery to St. Petersburg.
