The Norwegian NorSea Group specialises in special logistics and supplying off-shore stations. The company relies on flexible crane and loading solutions at its ten sites. The new SENNEBOGEN 6210 HMC is the crane for everyday use at Stavanger in Norway. The machine is characterised by high mobility and large loads. The SENNEBOGEN 6210 HMC was specially developed in cooperation with the customer for loading heavy loads. The supply vessels regularly departing from Stavanger supply off-shore platforms in the North Sea and are loaded with all kinds of materials and containers. The biggest challenge for the port workers is switching quickly between heavy goods and light containers. This is where the SENNEBOGEN harbour cranes really come into their own.
The latest model impresses with particularly high loads. Equipped with a 2x 200 kN double acting winch and a rope speed of up to 103 m/s, the SENNEBOGEN 6210 HMC achieves up to 55 cycles per hour with weights ranging between 5 and 15 tons. The local sales and service partner IMB Maskiner A.S. has supplied three machines to NorSea to date. The experiences have been completely positive. One special feature that sets the 6210 apart is the variable ballast. For loading particularly heavy goods, the machine can be ballasted easily with a 20 ton counterweight, which is positioned on the rear of the upper carriage using a lift truck. With this heavy-lift system, the ballast can be increased in stages from 45 tons to 65 tons. This increases the load of the machine by up to 40% percent without restricting the function and mobility. With the mounted boom, the SENNEBOGEN can lift up to 10.4 tons at 53.5 meter reach depth. The stable support plates ensure secure standing and the all-wheel drive offers maximum maneuverability. NorSea praises the longstanding positive experience with the tried-and-tested SENNEBOGEN machines, the ergonomic design and generous equipment in the driver's cab, as well as the easy access for maintenance and service work.
"With the new 6210 HMC, SENNEBOGEN has developed a machine that fulfills our requirements exactly. Manoeuvrable, mobile and with high loads, we can use the crane flexibly for all loading tasks", states Asgeir Klingsheim, technical manager, NorSea.
