The Time Has Come for Cranes at Expom

Knucleboom crane

Expom, the leader in production of davits according to DNV qualification association, now goes for the production of marine cranes. Another two Knuckleboom cranes, in which advanced anti-corrosion solutions were applied, left the company’s factory.

Over the last year in Expom, the company located near Gdańsk, specialising in the production of large-dimension steel structures, manufactured ten telescopic, straight or knuckleboom cranes at the order of customers from Scandinavia. Four more machines are being manufactured.

The first machine, the large-dimension, HSC 700 telescopic crane, was the most demanding one. The unit has a weight of 55t, height of 40m and lifting capacity of 18t. This crane operates in distant Dubai.

Knuckleboom cranes are characterised by special protections against corrosion and excessive load, as well as by advanced anti-corrosion solutions. The units are also equipped with remote control system and a number of devices boosting operation comfort. They have power hydraulics and electrical systems as well as electronic systems. This enables their efficient functioning even in extreme conditions. Each product leaves Expom having been subject to in-depth tests and certification under the eye of international units (such as DNV or ABS).

The company specialises in prototype production, therefore each successive crane is produced with substantial participation of technological and structural office. Completed cranes are each time subject to static and dynamic load tests, which allows it to anticipate and immediately solve possible problems connected, for example, with noise or vibrations. Cranes manufactured at Kurzętnik, near Gdańsk, are sold to Scandinavian countries, the US or the UAE.
