Crossing the continent

 South Africa’s Stahl Cranes & Hoists has completed the construction and installation of a two-beam bridge crane in Ghana, more than 10,000km away

Johannesburg-based Stahl Cranes & Hoists, partner of Stahl CraneSystems, manufactured the crane for Orsam Oil and Gas South Africa (Ortec). The 75t crane was then transported by land and sea to the General Electric project in Ghana.
Stahl CraneSystems produced an AS 7 wire rope hoist for the crane at its plant in Künzelsau, Germany, along with an SH wire rope hoist as an auxiliary hoist. These parts, along with crane components such as controls and drives, were also delivered to Johannesburg.
Stahl Cranes & Hoists then worked with engineers from Stahl CraneSystems to develop a unique beam construction comprising three individual parts, to allow it to be dismantled after construction in Johannesburg, packed into two containers each around 12m long, and transported 600km by land to Africa’s largest container docks, in Durban.
From there, the crane was shipped by sea more than 9,000km to Ghana, where the Stahl Cranes & Hoists technical team, led by site quality manager Theunis van Schalkwyk, worked with the Ortec staff to re-assemble, install and commission the crane.
