GLH cargo crane


GLH cargo crane


MacGregor GLH crane - ship crane designed for handling heavy-lift and multipurpose cargoes  


Crane type

GLH electro-hydraulic cranes are self-contained units with all machinery enclosed in the crane housing. This protects them from weather, corrosion and damage.

The standard GLH range covers lifting capacities from 100 to 1000 tonnes, with outreaches up to 36m.

Each crane is tested electrically, hydraulically and mechanically before delivery. 

General design

GLH cranes are designed to meet the rules of all recognized classification societies.

The MacGregor control system ensures smooth, fast and stepless crane control, with hoisting, luffing and slewing motions independent of each other. This means that at their maximum capacity, GLH 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 cargoes.
