Vertically self-erecting crane on extremely small surface

Page last modified
April 11 2024

The crane that builds itself! The Mammoet Focus is a high capacity pedestal crane that can work in confined areas with limited ground bearing pressure. Because it can be assembled vertically, safety risks involved with crane assembly over live structures are eliminated.

Its strength and unique technical features enable greater efficiency in upgrade and turnaround projects as well as inner city civil works.

Pros & Limitations
Vertical assembly does not compromise stability and strength
No longer necessary to lift crane elements over live infrastructures
Small assembly area contributes significantly to safety and efficiency
The crane has a variable and splittable superlift, which can be relocated swiftly
Increases flexibility on-site - particularly in congested environments
The pedestal design creates stability and helps to realize low ground bearing pressure of as little as 6t/m2
The Focus30 in many cases will not be the solution for your lifting challenges. If you have space available on site to assemble a conventional crane, do not consider the Focus30.
Specification Title Specification Description
2,500t class crane with a 30,000t/m load moment.
Can be built vertically up to a height of 150m on an extremely small surface of 30x40m.
Certifications/ Licences
Full compliance with applicables cranes codes.
Improves productivity by freeing up space on site. | Allows projects to start and finish sooner.
The FOCUS30 can be assembled within 10-14 days.
Safe Operating
Boom erection does not overhang adjacent areas of the plant, so plant workers, pipe racks and other key infrastructure can operate more safely.
