Crane relocation

Efficient and safe relocation by land or water

Relocating a crane – by sea, river or land transportation – can be a complex and risky process. Using their in-depth knowledge of crane stability and strength, our specialist teams have safely and smoothly executed relocation projects all around the globe.

Why choose Kalmar for your crane relocation?

Relocation is about more than just heavy lifting. Understanding the stresses it places on the equipment is critical to successful execution.

Relocating a ship-to-shore crane is a major engineering project, and safety is the first priority. Using their in-depth knowledge of crane stability and strength, our specialist teams have safely and smoothly executed relocation projects all around the globe.

When transporting your crane by ship or barge, getting the equipment on board is the easy part. Of course, there are factors like quay level, water level and tides to consider, but predicting the effects of the abnormal stresses that sea transportation can have on the crane is where the real challenge lies.

Our specialist engineering teams can simulate crane behaviour during sea transportation and design the correct seafastening based on the vessel and its expected behaviour. As well as engineering expertise, we also offer the project management skills needed to ensure successful execution.
