A New Generation of Offshore Portable Crane
Chris Poheng, CEO of Thunder Cranes talks about our latest portable, modular crane technology developed for safer, more efficient offshore lifting solutions. Our newest 90-ton offshore crane is the 2nd generation of the TC90 and the fifth overall development in our series of portable, modular cranes, and has been designed and upgraded to meet the needs of the offshore industry for the next 25 years.
“The TC90-05XL pedestal crane was built in partnership with Appleton Marine Inc, the USA-based API crane manufacturer, and is scheduled for delivery in Q4, 2019” said Poheng. The TC90-05XL features:
1 – Combined Turret and sub-base minimize rig up and rig down time while maintaining the lightest component weight in its class.
2 – Enhanced boom section connectors.
3 – New control panel offers better visibility for the operator with simplified controls equate to better control and placement of clients’ assets.
4 – Customized hoists made by Appleton are lighter and allow for more rope capacity with enhanced line speed.
5 – Different boom configurations provide clients with more options, resulting in more economically efficient lifts.
