Mammoet Launch 2,500t Class Crane for Confined Spaces – FOCUS30

Mammoet has released the new standard for heavy lifting in confined spaces: FOCUS30. The crane will help to increase the efficiency of lift operations in complex environments.

As cities develop and industries expand, demand for energy and infrastructure increases. Large industrial facilities have become more complex and crowded, while cities have become congested. At the same time, development work must continue.

Mammoet recognized that a new lifting solution was needed to better support clients. This solution would need to be assembled and operated in confined spaces but also deliver the size of lifts that modular projects demand. So, the FOCUS30 was born.

The FOCUS30 has been designed specifically to operate in areas with complex infrastructure and space limitations, such as petrochemical plants and inner cities. It delivers a high capacity crane that can be assembled within the smallest area possible, allowing more work to continue around it than would be the case for a crawler crane.

It can be erected swiftly in 14 days to allow projects to start and finish sooner. Its boom system is assembled vertically in sections, allowing erection to take place from just a 30m x 40m footprint. This also contributes significantly to safety as it ensures no part of the crane overhangs buildings, plant or people during assembly and disassembly activities.

The crane’s compact footprint allows customers to complete more work alongside heavy lifting operations, while its low ground bearing pressure limits the impact on surrounding infrastructure and reduces the amount of civil work that is required for lifting to begin. 

The FOCUS30 is a 2,500t class crane, making it ideal for a wide range of lifts. It also offers a great amount of flexibility as its variable and splittable superlift enables it to be relocated swiftly. It can also be moved entirely to another lifting position, without having to be deconstructed.
