CraneKing has delivered its second knuckle boom AK 30 HE4 crane to a newbuild fishing vessel being built for Marine Harvest at the Maritiem Cluster Friesland in Holland.

Both cranes were supplied complete with a unique marine painting system and flame metalisation treatment. They have four extensions each and a maximum SWL of 1180kg at 13.38m.

Bill Whitehead, director, CraneKing Ltd, said: “The high profile supply of these two HS Marine cranes to Marine Harvest marks a new chapter for CraneKing, cementing not only our support to Marine Harvest, but also the shipyard.”

He added that the firm is proving the quality of its product to this sector of the marine industry and that CraneKing hopes to continue to build on the excellent relationship it has built up with Marine Harvest.

Aside from this order, CraneKing has recently received other prestigious orders from the Environment Agency and the Port of London Authority (PLA) and for equipment for the new Royal Navy Type 45 Destroyers and QE Class Aircraft Carriers.
