World’s Largest Goliath Gantry Crane installed at shipyard
The world’s largest Goliath gantry crane at Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil has been made by Konecranes. These cranes have a lifting capacity of 2,000 tons and rail span of 210 meters. One of the most important variables in the productivity of a shipyard is the size and completeness of the blocks that make up the hull. When a big hull block needs lifting, it’s time for the Goliath Gantry Crane to take over. Tandem use of Konecranes Goliath Gantry Cranes improves safety and flexibility during dry dock. With a master-and-slave configuration, both cranes are controlled by one operator, from one control station. This eliminates the safety risks of two operators. Video: www.youtube.com/w...
