Cranes provide lifting power

Published:  09 July, 2014

Terex Material Handling has installed two Demag overhead travelling cranes at Dril-Quip Europe’s production facility in Aberdeen. A division of the multinational operator, Dril-Quip Inc of Houston, Texas, the company designs, manufactures and services a wide variety of hardware for the oil and gas industry.

Dril-Quip specified the Demag cranes as part of an expansion programme at its 400,000 sq ft production facility. The investment was driven by the need to handle increasingly large and heavy components, between manufacturing and assembly processes. Terex Material Handling supplied a Demag 50 t SWL, 17.6 m span ZKKW double girder overhead travelling crane and a 30 t SWL, 17.6 m span ZKKW double girder overhead travelling crane. Both cranes incorporate Demag MPW open winch wire rope lifting units, which are said to be particularly suited to Dril-Quip’s manufacturing processes.
