Home » Projects » Heavy Lifting

In close cooperation with our joint partner SCALDON we manufacture complete, custom-built offshore cranes and heavy lifting equipment. With safety being a priority and rules and regulations becoming stricter, the specifications for cranes used in the offshore market are becoming more demanding. Nevertheless, Draftec is still able to meet our clients’ needs. We are able to integrate our cranes into projects with a wider scope, including modifications to existing structures and customised foundations.

Crane operation can be designed according to customer specifications, including full integration of on-board safety and alarm systems. Our equipment can also be fully customised, for example a tailor-made cabin or radio remote controls. In the course of time, we have delivered several high-quality cranes for a wide range of class applications (e.g. BV, DNV, GL and LR), and with safety devices for overload protection such as AOPS or MOPS. This is combined with passive or active heave compensation (AHC), constant tension (CT) and man-riding functionality.

Offshore crane and heavy lifting equipment


For a number of projects​, our winches have been part of a larger work package, including ergonomic control desks, dynamic load control systems for all crane functions (e.g. hoisting, slewing, telescopic extension, etc.), and safety systems fully integrated with the vessel. In cooperation with our partner SCALDON,we have manufactured several offshore cranes and heavy lifting devices, such as:

have produced different offshore cranes and heavy lifting equipment, such as:

  • Fixed boom cranes that are commonly used as offshore platform, hose-handling and storage cranes, providing a low-maintenance solution when deck space is available;
  • Knuckle boom cranes that keep the distance between the boom head and the load as short as possible;
  • Telescopic beam cranes that offer the perfect solution for smaller vessels when deck space is limited.
