In many cases crane modernisation goes hand in hand with a complete refurbishment. That means: not only components are replaced, but renovation work is also carried out on the steel parts.

In this case it proves to be an inestimable advantage if you have a complete archive of all design documents and as-built drawings available (as it is customary at Ardelt). This means the competent and proper execution of all work on the cranes is guaranteed.


With a modern control system, new travel mechanisms, overhauled drives, a completely new driver’s cab, new feed-in system, refurbished ascents and machinery and electrical housings, specially- trained crane operators and maintenance personnel and a new friendly coat of paint, at the end of the refurbishment work we can hand over a crane that performs better and more economically than before. And that also adds a new shine to a location in ports or companies.
