G.C. Maritime

G.C. Maritime is pleased to offer inspection, maintenance and repair of marine cranes manufactured by Oriental Precision & Engineering of Korea (OPCO) to customers worldwide.

G.C. Maritime president Dieter Liebich said: "OPCO is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of marine cranes. Its cranes are found on offshore platforms, cargo vessels and in shipyards. We are pleased to be among the small group of companies authorised to service and test this equipment."

G.C. Maritime’s senior service engineers travelled to the OPCO training facility in Busan, Korea, where they gained hands-on experience and certification for:

  • Deck cranes (pictured)
  • Hose handling cranes
  • Provision cranes
  • Knuckle cranes
  • Electric slewing cranes
  • Monorail cranes
  • Engine room cranes
  • Offshore cranes
  • Gantry cranes

Mr Liebich added: "Inspection service is not complete without a load test. We also offer load tests of up to 500t with our own inspected and certified water bags and load cells."

"We are pleased to be among the small group of companies authorised to service and test this equipment."

All OPCO marine crane inspection and multi-tonne load testing services are readily available in North America, where G.C. Maritime dispatches service engineers and equipment from its warehouse and workshops in Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Miami.

Since beginning business in 2003 by providing service on marine diesel engines, Mr Liebich, a master mariner and mechanical engineer, has grown the business to include inspections on lifeboats and davits, general ship repair, sale of spare parts and LSA equipment, crew training and technical consultation.

G.C. Maritime provides offshore operators and shipping customers with the speediest possible service by operating service hubs in Los Angeles, Miami, New York, New Orleans, Vancouver, Nassau and its home base in Houston.
