A small assembly area
This contributes significantly to safety and efficiency during its assembly phase. Among other advantages, it is no longer necessary to lift crane elements over live infrastructures, such as pipe racks, nearby buildings, and of course, people. Multiple innovations and improvements have made this possible:
- Main boom mast sections are provided in sections and are erected using a guidance system that allows vertical mast build-up
- A specific masthead enables hoisting or lowering of the back mast during crane erection or disassembly
- A feed system on the crane’s upper structure allows safe and convenient insertion of mast sections
- The erection frame allows stable vertical mast erection, based on a proven methodology for tower cranes. Boom stop cylinders, integrated in the support brace of the erection frame, keep the main boom mast sections vertical and stable.
A small footprint
The FOCUS30 is a vertically self-erecting crane. It can be built vertically up to a height of 150m on an extremely small surface of 30x30m, without compromising stability and strength. This is approximately the space occupied by two tennis courts.
The result is a high capacity crane that can be assembled on the smallest area possible, making it ideal for use in confined spaces. The only auxiliary lifting capacity needed is any locally available 400t hydraulic crane to lift its mast sections into place.
A high lifting capacity
The FOCUS30 is a 2,500t class crane with a 30,000t/m load moment, giving it impressive lifting capability.
A large and variable operational window
The crane has a variable and splittable superlift, which can be relocated swiftly. All of this increases its flexibility on-site - particularly in congested environments – allowing more lifts to be made using the same crane. The FOCUS30 can be at work within 10-14 days and can be assembled using a locally available 400t hydraulic crane. This makes it well-suited for projects with a strict time window for execution.
A low ground bearing pressure
The FOCUS30’s pedestal design creates stability and helps to realize low ground bearing pressure of as little as 6t/m2 – allowing it to be used on sites with softer ground, or where infrastructure below ground level must be protected. Where the surface allows, the FOCUS30 can also be skidded to additional lifting positions.
