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.
