GLHE cargo crane


GLHE cargo crane


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


Crane type

GLHE electric variable frequency drive (VFD) cranes are self-contained units with all machinery enclosed in the crane housing. This protects them from weather, corrosion and damage.

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

The crane can also be delivered in a stepless load/outreach combination, which makes maximum use of the crane due to its mechanical design.

Each crane is tested electrically and mechanically before delivery.  

General design

GLHE 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, GLHE 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.

Crane details
