NEW THINKING IN MOBILE CRANE DESIGN

Mobile cranes are being increasingly used in the world's ports and terminals both as back-up and mainline equipment. To date, port mobiles have tended to be developments of existing road-going mobile cranes though of late, mobile portal cranes derived from dockside crane design have been introduced. This article, based on a paper presented at the recent 7th International Harbour Conference in Antwerp, describes a new mobile crane concept which attempts to combine the best qualities of road-going mobile and dockside portal cranes.
