Applications

MARINE

PALFINGER knuckle boom cranes for marine applications move extremely heavy loads while the compact fold down position leaves more room on deck. The improved level of control makes the knuckle boom crane ideal for offshore lifting operations. The cranes are a preferred solution for heavy lifting of provision, service equipment or container and cargo handling.

  • Provision cranes
  • Service cranes
  • Container and cargo handling cranes

OFFSHORE

The knuckle boom cranes of PALFINGER's marine business are designed to lift high loads with extended jib and provide the operator with great flexibility during lifting operations. Severe weather conditions and heavy seas introduce oscillating motions to suspend loads. The improved level of control makes the knuckle boom crane ideal for offshore lifting operations on rigs, platforms or offshore vessels in higher sea states.

  • Deck cranes (shipboard)
  • Ship to Ship cranes
  • Pipe handling cranes
  • Boat handling cranes

WIND

PALFINGER knuckle boom cranes for the wind industry ensure safe and fast loading and unloading of supply vessels and flexible material handling on the substation.
