GLB cargo crane


GLB cargo crane


MacGregor GLB crane - wire-luffing bulk handling ship crane

A new design for bulk handling based on a proven concept


Crane type

GLB electro-hydraulic deck cranes are intended for use on bulk carriers. They offer a robust design, and excellent control and operational characteristics.

The range covers lifting capacities from 25 to 36 tonnes, with 18-30m outreaches.

GLB cranes are built from modules, and are easy to maintain and install.  

General design

GLB cranes are designed to meet the rules of all recognised classification societies and work in the tough conditions that that are associated with handling bulk material.

The cranes have a stepless control system, and hoisting, luffing and slewing motions are independent of each other. This means that at their maximum capacity, GLB cranes can operate at full speed using all three movements at the same time.

Cranes can be supplied with the tools needed for handling specific types of cargo.
