Our products range from Cranes, Pipelay Equipment, Drilling Equipment and Winches, to Vessel Designs and Specials. Our clients choose us for our entrepreneurial spirt, skills, reliability, and especially because of our innovative solutions. 

In 1982, we delivered our first ever mast crane, a unique concept due to its small footprint, superior loading curve and small tail swing. This crane could lift 40mt. Now, in 2021, we have delivered the largest offshore windmill installation gripper, largest offshore mast crane and the largest Tub Mounted cranes in the world. 203 vessels are now equipped with our equipment, all the equipment we have made together can lift 150,000mt and with our largest crane we can lift 1,667 elephants in one lift!

There is a reason that we claim we are ‘equipped for impact’. We are constantly working on new solutions and systems which we believe add value to the market’s existing technologies. Solutions with impact.

These innovations are implemented into many of our products. As we have extensive operational experience with a wide variety of heavy construction equipment, we are able to use the best solutions for new products and projects. Our internal disciplines include Mechanical, Structural, Naval, Hydraulical, Electrical and Software Engineering.

Each day, we strive to have our solutions and service levels become the new industry standard. We keep challenging our environment to take innovation, quality and safety to the next level. Check out the examples of our step changing technical solutions.
