News Cranes Deliveries
BB Cranes enjoying a flush of sales and success

August 23, 2022  By Don Horne

BB Cranes is reaching new heights of success with a number of recent orders.

Included are two Class 4 cranes, the first to be built by BB Cranes. The very heavy-duty, double-girder overhead travelling cranes, identical in design, are capable of two and three-shift operation, and feature fast long-travel and cross-travel speeds to maximize productivity. The identical 5-tonners will have spans of 15 metres and lifting heights of 9,4 metres. Controlled by pendants, they will lift at speeds of up to 8 metres per minute. Cross-travel speeds will be 38 metres per minute, and long-travel speeds anything up to 80 metres per minute, equivalent to an exercise-paced walk.

As well as the two Class 4 machines, BB Cranes will manufacture four portal cranes and four overhead cranes for two separate shipbuilding companies in Cape Town, South Africa itself. The four portal cranes are for Two Oceans Marine, a Cape Town shipbuilder niched in the luxury catamaran sector. The overhead travelling cranes will be for an existing customer.
