Engineering and construction firm Sarens has transported and loaded-out several over-dimensional jacket modules at the Smulders Projects jacket yard in Newcastle, UK

The project involved moving the 397-tonne modules using Saren’s SGC-120, one of the world’s largest cranes. The crane features a 45-meter ring footprint and a boom length of 130 meters.

“Assembling a crane like this is a project unto itself … You need a decent-sized crawler crane to install the counterweights, which weigh 100 tonnes each, 36 of them. But all that together pays off, and in the end you have a crane that has over 3,000 tonnes of capacity,” said Peter Huygebaert, global technical solutions engineering manager at Sarens.
