UTRECHT, Netherlands – Production of parts and components for Mammoet’s upcoming SK6000 6,000-tonne capacity crane has begun, with the model, said by the company to be the world’s highest-capacity land-based crane, set to be assembled later this year.

The SK6000 was announced in 2020. Set to be electrically-powered, the model is based on the concepts and designs of smaller models in the SK line already in use around the world today.

With a maximum radius of 200 metres, the SK6000 will be able to lift 3,000-tonne loads at a 220-metre hook height. Ideal for port operations and cargo transfer, modules can be lifted directly onto hulls without the need to be rotate on land or ship.
