10T OVERHEAD TRAVELLING CRANE & GANTRY: RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT, ORKNEY – FEB 2014
A previously used double girder electric overhead travelling crane was modified, overheauled, delivered & installed for our Orkney based client, Scotrenewables Tidal Power Ltd, to assist with the outfitting of their unique Tidal Turbine click here for details.
Special measures had to be taken to coordinate the transportation of the crane components, plant & materials to site due to the remote location. At Harold Potter Ltd, we relish the thought of a challenge and stepped up to the mark to deliver the crane on time and precisely to the client’s specification.
The crane (pictured below) is a 10 tonne Safe Working Load Demag overhead travelling crane with a span of 10mtr, 5mtr Height of Lift and has a 12mtr length free standing gantry. The cross travel motors were fitted with inverter drives to allow for precise positioning of the hook for delicate operations.
