Mteck Cranes BV knows that every client has different specific demands for their machines. We construct the best custom-made machines for every application. The possibilities are endless.

Loadmoment capacity

The chassis of an Mteck crane is determined by multiplying work load by work distance. For example: hoisting 25 mT at a distance of 16 meters requires an Mteck400 chassis (25 * 16 = 400). The last two digits specify the winch size. An Mteck425 is an Mteck400 with hoist and closing winches that put out 25mT of pulling force. Drag the slider below to see some cranes of different sizes.

Watercooled PM
Diesel genset
Diesel hydraulic
Our cranes will be equipped with the drivetrain that is most needed for the job. Induction engines power winches and slewing gear, and are fit for most jobs.
PM engines power winches and slewing gear, and are incredibly compact and silent. They may be used for jobs where size or sound is an issue, like in a natural reserve.
Electric cranes that are not connected to the electrical grid, like many off-shore cranes, need their own electric generator to power the engines.
A hydropack transforms electric power into hydraulic work. This set-up is used in electric cranes with hydraulically powered components, like for example, a crawler.
This old and proven set-up transforms diesel power into hydraulic work. This set-up is used only in diesel-hydraulic cranes. Hydraulic engines power winches, slewing gear and crawlers. Not as clean, but sturdy and at least as powerful as electric engines, hydraulic engines are the old school choice, and a proven concept.

Crane mount

Weighted base
Rail undercarriage
The pedestal is the standard solution for ship- or pontoon-mounted cranes, and depending on size, can be fitted with electric hardware.
The weighted base is the standard solution for immobile on-shore cranes.
The rail undercarriage enables a crane to move along a ship’s hull. This extends its reach, also relative to the ship’s hold.
The crawler comes with a hydraulic drive-train. This set-up is often used for city cranes or draglines.
We are able to deliver a variety of crane mount solutions. Each perfectly matches the accompanying crane in terms of size, strength, stability and drivetrain power. Each mount can also be customized to meet any specific needs. If the crane mount you prefer is not included in this list: We can still make it!

Remote service 24/7 GPS analyses

At the moment our mechanics perform maintenance to dredge cranes all around the world. With a professional attitude and a down-to-earth mentality they identify problems before they actually occur. This prevents wear and tear which may lead to downtime.

Consumption / cycle

The drive train of an Mteck crane is fully electrically driven, that’s why we can achieve an efficiency of 97%. This efficiency can be converted 1 to 1 into energy consumption (gasoil if running from a generator, or Kwh if the installation is powered from the grid)


Average maintenance costs

One of the most expensive cost of an actual repair is the loss of operating income that results when a crane is out of service. Mteck provides fully electric crane systems that will have an operational downtime of 0,3% on a life expectancy of 40 years before a complete overhaul.


Legal, norms and certificates

Engineered by the best

Mteck cranes are engineered and built according to european crane standards.

If needed, the engineering and build can be done according to the rules of classification companies from the shipping and offshore industry, for example Lloyds and Bureau Veritas.

The Mteck cranes will be classified in the highest class of use, wich results in a durable crane system that will prove its services for a long time without problems and a low downtime.

This applies to the crane structure as well as to the crane mounted components like gearboxes, motors, bearings, pins and slewing ring.
