Project Ref: 60261
Client: DSME
Project: Ichthys Offshore Project Darwin NT Australia

Eilbeck Cranes has successfully completed Factory Acceptance Testing and delivered 5 cranes capacity ranging from 5t to 70t(50t+50t) Cranes for DSME for FPSO for the Ichthys LNG offshore Project.

The cranes have successfully passed a rigorous quality and hazardous testing phase by the client, prooving once again Eilbeck’s commitment and proficiency in manufacturing and commisioning for Ex-proof environment.

All cranes have been upgraded from European Standard compliance to Australian Standard IEC EX compliance, required for explosion proof cranes.

Next up 1x 25t Semi Portal Crane and 1 x 5t Single Girder Crane for SHI for the same project are currently being manufactured.
