Lightweight Service Crane

Reaching areas other cranes can’t

As cities rise upwards, heavy lift capability is increasingly required at difficult-to-reach locations. Offshore, space is always at a premium, and auxiliary equipment difficult to mobilize. These situations need lifting technology that is highly capable but can be built quickly and easily by hand.

So, Mammoet created the Lightweight Service Crane.

Avoid disrupting the world below

Mammoet’s Lightweight Service Crane offers 6t lifting capacity designed for restricted spaces. It is extremely mobile and versatile; able to operate from the smallest of rooftops. It has an aluminum frame, and so can be carried and assembled by hand, in only a small timeframe and by a limited crew. This makes it cost-effective to deploy and to use for a wide range of lifts, including facade elements, billboards, and displays.

The Lightweight Service Crane can be mobilized quickly to almost any location; its components can be brought to site by the lift team, using their own hands and a small selection of Mammoet tools. It helps you keep close control over operational costs, as the crane can be assembled and start work quickly, requiring no customer-supplied equipment for its own construction.

Thanks to its low footprint, the crane is highly versatile, and can be installed in almost any location. Additional lightweight equipment, such as skidding systems, can be added to enhance its functionality; for example, to remove or install multiple items on the facade of a building during a single operation.

The crane has been fitted with the latest safety features, including a load moment indicator and the ability to give real-time load readings, boom angle measurements and optional man-riding capability. The crane is certified according to DNV GL and EN Norms and, thanks to its modular design, can be assembled to suit a wide range of project requirements.

Perform more lifting from the topside

Mammoet designed the Lightweight Service Crane to offer our customers standardized lifting solutions for complex offshore assets, including flare booms, vent stacks and other pre-assembled units. A lightweight solution was required that could be easily built by hand in areas which are difficult to reach.

The Lightweight service crane was designed to be brought to site via elevators, stairs and walkways, making it the ideal solution when access to the lift site is difficult. It has a maximum lift capacity of 6t, making it suitable for a variety of tasks. Its lattice boom construction stands at a height of 7m, with its 6m vertical mast supported by either fixed diagonal braces, or optionally guy ropes.

The majority of its components weigh only between 20kg and 40kg, and its heaviest component weighs just 120kg. The crane’s mast sections - which in cross-section occupy an area of 50x50cm - stand at two meters tall and are constructed in modular fashion. So, the Lightweight Service Crane can be installed anywhere without the requirement for an assembly crane.

Extremely mobile and versatile

The Lightweight Service Crane allows you to increase the cost-effectiveness of lifting on land, by reducing permitting requirements and the need to hire over-sized or auxilliary cranes. At sea, it allows more lifts to take place without a crane vessel, and also enables more lifts from difficult-to-reach locations.

The Lightweight Service Crane has been designed to:

  • Lift heavy units on high-rise buildings
  • Carry out stick building of high-rise structures
  • Perform the handling of heavy equipment in and onto ships
  • Execute indoor deployments where overhead cranes are unavailable
  • Provide alternative/additional lifting capacity on offshore platforms
  • Execute repairs, installation and deinstallation of cranes and aircraft warning lights
  • Undertake offshore repair/installation of flare booms and vent stacks
  • Be utilized in decommissioning works
  • Complete the assembly and disassembly of tower cranes
  • Undertake replacement of the ‘cut’ from overhead cranes operating on nuclear sites
  • Complete onshore installation of building maintenance units (BMUs)
