Mitsubishi Heavy debuts Japan's largest goliath crane

Tokyo: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has announced that the 1,200-ton goliath crane introduced to the Koyagi Plant of its Nagasaki Shipyard went into full-swing operation this week. The crane is the largest in Japan today. In combination with the existing 600-ton cranes at the yard, the Koyagi Plant is now able to jumboize the blocks it handles to as large as 1,500 tons. Coupled with other developments such as the expansion of its plant building, the annual construction capacity of the Koyagi Plant will increase to seven ships from five now, in terms of LNG carriers.
The new crane measures 95.5 meters in height and 185 meters in breadth.  [22/02/08]
