ABERDEEN, UK -- GGR will introduce a range of compressed air powered mini cranes this week at Offshore Europe.

The AL Series of cranes, based on the GGR AirLift spider crane range, comprises six models, and is classified to operate in hazardous Zone 1 and Zone 2 offshore and petrochemical environments.

The AL660, with a lifting capacity of 6 metric tons (6.6 tons), will be displayed on a purpose-built roundabout at the main entrance to the exhibition. The AL529, with a lifting capacity of 2.9 metric tons (3.2 tons), will be demonstrated inside the exhibition hall on stand 722.

The AL Series is designed for restricted access and confined working environments, and is said to be easily transportable by land, sea and air. Additionally, all models can be dissembled into component form for helicopter transportation to remote locations, such as rigs and platforms.
