Lord of rings


Heavy lifting specialist Mammoet has unveiled designs for a 1,600 tonne capacity ring crane which can be transported in standard shipping containers.

The Platform Twin Ring Containerised (PTC) crane has been developed in response to increased demand for heavy lifting operations, the firm said.

The PTC is designed to be manoeuvrable in confined areas and can be relocated in a day using its own crawlers.
