GL cargo crane

Excellent load positioning enhances a vessel’s overall efficiency and reduces time in port.

MacGregor GL electro-hydraulic cranes deliver smooth, fast and stepless crane control with hoisting, luffing and slewing motions independent of each other. This means that at their maximum capacity GL cranes can operate at full speed using all three movements at the same time.

The crane can also be delivered in a stepless load/outreach combination, which makes maximum use of the crane’s capabilities..

MacGregor GL electro-hydraulic crane designs are based on our lengthy experience and are backed-up by unrivalled global service support and a proven track record of more than 13,000 crane deliveries worldwide over the past 50 years.

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

General design
GL cranes are designed to meet the rules of all recognised classification societies.

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

The standard GL range covers lifting capacities from 25 to 100 tonnes, with outreaches of up to 41m.

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