Etihad Cranes and Lifting Solutions has partnered with GH Cranes of Spain to provide high-performance cranes at a major project launched within the King Abdul Aziz International Airport complex in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

GH Cranes is one of the largest European crane manufacturers and a market leader in the production of special lifting equipment.

The partnership is providing 45 EOT (electric overhead travelling) cranes and a gantry crane for the project, which consists of an elaborate plant for the auxiliary maintenance of reaction jets.

“This mega project boasts of a huge investment, where this large scale-crane delivery has a total funding of $125 million,” says a spokesman for the UAE-headquartered company.

Initial work on the facility began in January 2013 and its completion is scheduled for this month (May).

He says some of the EOT cranes have two lifting speeds, bringing the total number of hoists to 71 units, making it one of the largest crane orders in the world this year, he adds.

“Being part of this project for Saudi Aerospace Engineering Industries, Etihad Cranes and Lifting Solutions has successfully established itself as a multi-faceted company in the heavy lifting industry in the region,” says the spokesman.

Etihad Cranes and Lifting Solutions, a division of Mechatronics East Tech (MET) Machines Group, has successfully branched out in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region and Europe to cater to the growing demands of customers.

The company combines modern design technologies and advanced European performance features in a comprehensive range of cranes and components. The various products and services it offers include EOT, gantry, jib and marine cranes, monorails, process cranes and transfer carts, as well as complete designing, fabrication and erection of steel structure.

“In today’s competitive engineering industry, Etihad Cranes and Lifting Solutions has proven itself in providing its clients with the best in lifting innovations. Deriving and delivering cost-effective solutions along with superior quality is one of the company’s foremost principles,” says the spokesman.

Etihad Cranes is certified to ISO 9001:2008 quality management system, OHSAS 18001:2007 occupational health and safety management system, and CE certification standards, to offer superior products and services.
