Cranes, winches, hoists and dockside equipment
Within the KGAL stable of resources and engineering expertise there is a wealth experience to be called upon in respect of cranes and winches and dockside equipment.
We are capable of conducting detailed engineering assessment and statutory inspections of many different types of crane and dockside assets such as:-
- Shore to ship conveyors
- Container cranes
- Rail and tyre mounted gantry cranes
- Straddle carriers
KGAL can advise on reliability, maintenance and inspection regimes and potential upgrades as well as performing and reporting on the statutory structural inspections of the dockside major assets.
Our engineering designs include hydropower gantries and hoists for stoplogs, intake gates and trash racks whilst our authoratative inspections extend to all types of lifting equpiment including jib, mobile, crawler, and gantry cranes, material handling equipment plus manual, electric and hydraulic hoists and winches.
