New crane installed at Ulstein VerftYard News // September 23, 2013
Work is underway at Ulstein Verft in Norway to install a 250-tonne travelling crane in the dock hall.
With the new crane, Ulstein Verft will become the first Norwegian yard capable of performing 500 tonne indoor tandem lifts.
“We have also purchased two multiwheelers to transport large sections around the yard. The procurement of new transport and lifting equipment will make us even more flexible. We will now be able to handle larger and heavier blocks,” said Ulstein Verft's production manager Roar Riise.
Investments have also been made at Ulstein Verft’s production facilities in Vanylven, where a new environmentally friendly bevel plasma cutter will be installed this October.
