OUCO Marine/Offshore Telescopic boom cranes are based on a pedestal slewing design with hydraulic cylinder luffing. The boom extension is a telescopic inner section that allows a more flexible and wider operational radius in use and leaves the crane stored in a compact position.
The advantages of the telescopic cranes are low weight and less complex design making them maintenance-friendly. The cranes are available from 5 –40 meters of crane boom, which have long range of usage. OUCO Marine Telescopic cranes can be designed and manufactured by clients’ requirements in our own factory.
