Protea is well known for delivering high quality handling equipment including cranes, winches and mechanical handling systems for the offshore and onshore industries.
This includes gantry and semi gantry cranes used in different industrial applications. Recently, for one our Polish clients in paper industry, Protea has manufactured a gantry crane with the girder length of 36,5m.
To safely transport such equipment to its final destination a special road transport had to be arranged. The transportation had to take place over night with special truck for oversized cargo. The whole complex operation involved traffic control, road signs dismantling and several turns going off the road.
Fortunately all vehicles arrived at the destination and the crane could be assembled again on site. Now it undergoes testing and commissioning and we hope it will benefit our client’s operations for many years.
