Dutch marine services company HEBO is getting ready to add its biggest sheerleg crane to its fleet with an impressive lifting capacity of 900 tons and a high lifting height. 

“This sheerleg has a maximum lifting capacity of 900 tons and it also has an impressive lifting capacity at longer reaches. At a reach of 22.5 meters it can lift up to 800 tons and it can still lift 500 tons at a reach of 46 meters,” said Wiebbe Bonsink, CEO of HEBO Maritiemservice. 

HEBO will take delivery of the crane in mid-January 2018 in Denmark from DBB Salvage. With it, the company hope to break into the Baltic Sea market. 

“We can use it for activities in the Baltic Sea but also in the North Sea or in Rotterdam,” said Bonsink.

Other features of the crane include a 100-ton auxiliary hoist with a maximum lifting height of 74 meters and a maximum reach of more than 60 meters. The sheerleg, which is self-propelled, is also equipped with a dynamic positioning system. In the future, Bonsink also wants to equip it with a jib.

‚ÄúThis way, we will be able to lift heavy loads at greater heights”, he said.
