Hose handling (HH) crane

Our hose-handling cranes deliver precise, safe and reliable operations. These capabilities are backed-up by lengthy experience, unrivalled global service support and a proven track record of more than 13,000 crane deliveries worldwide over the past 50 years.

Electro-hydraulic hose-handling cranes (HH) are self-contained units. They have a robust and solid design with components selected for durability in demanding marine environments.

The standard range covers capacities from three to 25 tonnes, with outreaches of up to 24m.


The hose-handling crane is designed for working in hazardous areas and is driven by an explosion-proof electric motor. The electric starter is located in a safe area and EExde start/stop buttons are mounted on the crane.

General design

MacGregor hose-handling cranes are designed to fulfill OCIMF recommendations.

The cranes are designed for a temperature range from +45°C to the lowest ambient working temperature for worldwide trading according to classification societies’ requirements.

All crane types employ the same basic machinery, but differ in the arrangement of components. Standardised and modularised components make the cranes easy to build.
