10,000t capacity – the world’s biggest land-based crane

The 10,000t SK10,000 is the world’s largest capacity land-based crane. It enables new levels of project efficiencies in schedule, safety and cost for the lifting of ultra-heavy modules, particularly in FPSO and FLNG construction.

Its exceptional capacity means modules can be installed directly onto ship’s hulls, utilising the same design as the other SK cranes for unparalleled lifting power in a compact plot area with flexible ring configuration.

Small plot area

Despite being the world’s biggest crane based on land, the SK10,000’s central ballast design eliminates the need to install a full ring or crane track. It only needs the section required for the project – reducing occupancy of the lifting area by up to 45%.

Simplified logistics & assembly

Containerised design and fast-assembly features minimise mobilisation and assembly time. ALE’s specialists can assemble the crane in a matter of weeks using standard plant and a crawler crane.

Increased site efficiency

Compact footprint comparable to smaller cranes enables the SK10,000 to be assembled on site with minimal disruption to site operations. Large lifting and outreach capabilities enables it to pick and lift items to many positions without the need for separate transport systems.
