Manitowoc 31000 Biggest Lift

ManitowocManitowoc’s largest crane the 2,300 tonne capacity 31000 crawler crane has completed it largest lift to date picking and carrying a 650 tonne cold box at a liquefied natural gas plant in Gwangyang, South Korea.

The lift at the Posco E&C plant involved the first 31000 to be delivered – owned by South Korea’s Chunjo Construction Co – which has been working on site since March. The crane is scheduled to carry out a 900 tonne lift this month and two 1,000 tonne lifts in December and February.

“It is great to see this flagship crane performing, making an awkward lift look easy,” said Chang Hwan Jang, chairman at Chunjo. “The 31000 has a minimal footprint thanks to its Variable Position Counterweight but also offers a huge capacity, so it fits our needs perfectly. We are delighted with how well the crane is performing and look forward to seeing the next challenging lift it tackles.”

The Manitowoc 31000 lifted the 55 m tall cold box, which measures nine meters square off a flat-bed trailer in tandem with a 600 tonne capacity Manitowoc 18000, also owned by Chunjo. Once airborne and upright, the 31000 carried the load to its final location. The entire operation took less than two hours.
