Things You Should Know About Our Offshore Portable-Modular Cranes

An offshore portable-modular crane is a type of crane that is designed specifically for lifting operations on offshore platforms and is definitely more cost effective compared to a conventional barge crane.

What sets our offshore modular cranes apart is their unique  design, which allows them to be quickly  rigged up and rigged down on-site, which significantly cuts down on  time as well as costs.

Apart from that, offshore portable cranes are highly versatile and adaptable to the unique challenges of offshore environments, such as space constraints, remoteness and inaccessibility. 

Thunder Cranes offers a range of powerful offshore-modular cranes that are ideal for lifting heavy loads in restricted spaces, as well as for other various offshore operations such as flare tip removal, lifting under helideck or cellar deck, helideck skidding, and launch and recovery services. 

Our API-compliant cranes are built with the highest standards of quality and safety and are designed to help our clients achieve their offshore lifting goals safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively.

Why Offshore Portable-Modular Cranes are Necessary

Offshore platforms may lack the appropriate lifting equipment necessary to support the most efficient and cost-effective project strategy. Existing platform cranes may not have the required reach radius, hook height, or may have been de-rated, hindering the fulfilment of project requirements. Consequently, a temporary offshore rental crane may be necessary.

Out at sea, the environmental conditions can be harsh and unpredictable. Furthermore, on offshore sites there are space and accessibility constraints. Our portable cranes are designed to withstand these challenges.

Built to be rugged, durable and reliable, our cranes are capable of performing in even the most demanding conditions and can be quickly assembled and disassembled on-site. 

Besides that, our offshore portable cranes have the ability to be self-lifted and the standard installation to the platform will not require any hot work as well as minimum to no modifications to the platform itself.

This feature helps to cut down on time and allows for projects to be completed faster and with fewer delays, which in turn also saves cost.

These key considerations include the lifting capacity, hook height, operational environment, platform structural design, space restrictions, vessel compatibility and budget.
