In a market with saturated and repetitive crane design characteristics to withstand heavy duty operations, increased lifting performance, stability, and limited parking position are more often required to be provided. A development of features that should bring to ship owners additional value.
Being this a common challenge for crane makers, for Heila instead, used to supply tailor made cranes as their peculiarity used to supply custom equipment for proper fitting on each vessel. Every single crane is “equally different”. This is where the HEILA knuckle telescope cranes can overcome the need and provide a grip to these requirements.
Refit Vs Newbuild units
Upgrading or converting of an existing vessel can be competitive with newbuild options if prepared and managed well.
Cost saving from the necessity of newbuilding purchasing as a substantial investment that often takes (too) much time to obtain maximum benefit from an emerging opportunity.
Accomplishing the needed maintenance and modernization is essential to creating a competitive maritime capability.
Improved efficiency by proven design
As a result of 36 year history expertize, in June 2017, Heila has signed an order for the construction of a giant 70T knuckle telescopic boom crane.
This crane is the latest brand new seized design concept in the entire marine market.
With only 60Ton of deadweight, this crane can be installed on the smallest ship without impacting on the stability, with a low power consumption of just 320kW to further decrease the demand to the vessel’s genset.
Telescopic arms up to 30 meters radius, with very limited parking space; Only 6 meters required, suitable for fitting of a 40m vessels length and most space-sensitive Oil & Gas platform;
Funding these improvements has relied on a cost-sharing formula for depending projects.
This versatility will enable the owners to bid for different charters, (platform supply vessels) (ROV lifting, buoy, Anchor handling)
Allowing the owner to:
-engage the existing unit for multi-purpose chartering,
-avoiding crane replacements due to charter requirement,
-cut off mobilization time, be more competitive and increase the numbers of awarded charter during bidding,
-cut off vessel downtime, saving money
Heila covers all phases of project
development from engineering to service assistance, having every crane fitted with the latest technology and know-how, without losing the focus of what we can do best.
Fit the crane on each owner’s vessel.
Widening the bidding prospects by wide crane application
A technology that can offer considerable advantages by widening the spectrum of the activities with a consequent rise for vessel charter operations.
This combination will bring to owners increased fleets optimization on the installed features with consequential raise of asset value and increased turnover prospect. This means higher revenue for the ship owners. Providing to the operator key features that allow to utilize this crane in several applications.
Be simple be fast
Our strong skills in tailor made cranes are our peculiarity; designed and built in a very competitive time those customs built cranes do perfectly fit and answer to the customer’s request.
Less required maintenance
With the continuous demand for heavy duty operation in most harsh environment, during the years Heila has developed a specific anti-corrosion program that describes the complete process that every crane produced goes through, offering to operators as well solution for improving crane lifetime and decrease maintenance schedule program, with return investment for ship-owners.
Accomplishing the needed maintenance and modernization is essential to creating a competitive maritime capability. This combination will bring to owners increased fleets optimization on the installed features with consequential raise of asset value and increased turnover prospect. This means higher revenue for the ship owners. Providing to the operator key features that allow to utilize this crane in several applications.
Reduction of operational time
Time is important. The more can be saved, the more can be utilized for other schedule activities.
By simple selection in the controls those cranes are capable of being operated both by winch or crane hook. Made coincide the reference point of the crane hook with the operator, through this design, allow the ship owner to decrease the operational timing, increasing efficiency, and money.
With the implementation of the radio remote control the operator will have the best combination of lifting performance and visibility spectrum for the most efficient lifting operations.
Following the company structure re-organization on 2011, Heila has collected a serial award of prestigious projects:
-supply of 4 LRs Classed Cranes for Kuwait Oil Company, says Waled Gaber “A master achievement”.
-supply of crane for NOOR2 project, the biggest solar power plant worldwide built in Morocco. Crane installed on a 265meters tower.
till the recent delivery of two units certified with DNVGL destined to offshore operation for the first worldwide pilot project of submersible fishing platform. The cranes are provided with the more complex safety features according to Norvegian maritime directorate and Classification society.
