Constructing modules onshore has allowed EPCs to expedite project schedules and increase cost-effectiveness. As these components grow, so does their efficiency – but also the challenge of their construction.
Mammoet began with the proven design of its existing SK190 and SK350 cranes and explored how this design blueprint could provide the foundations for a new model with unprecedented lifting capacity and outreach; creating the SK6,000.
Its unique design, consisting of a centralized ballast, means that there is no need to install a full ring track. This frees up site space by up to 45%, allowing operations around the crane to continue.
As the SK6,000 is containerized and can be assembled quickly on-site, it can deliver heavy-lift capability to wherever it is needed. This provides greater flexibility in where and how projects are completed.
