New cranes for dockyard

Published:  21 February, 2014

As part of a major upgrade by Babcock to the Rosyth Dockyard, new overhead travelling cranes have been built and installed by STREET CRANE COMPANY. Within the package, eight old overhead cranes have been removed and replaced by 19 high specification cranes. The new equipment ensures more efficient and flexible mechanical handling and lifting, with modern standards of safety and performance.

Rosyth is upgrading its facilities to support on-going commercial, marine and offshore projects. To achieve greater flexibility and productivity, the assembly and fabrication bays have been fitted with multiple heavy lift cranes ranging in capacity from 10 to 35 tonnes safe working load. All cranes are of double girder construction and benefit from a combination of Street’s advanced ZX hoists and VX custom-built hoists.
