MacGregor’s heavy-duty transloading crane with the type name “TEC”, which claims to improve efficiency and lower maintenance costs, is now available.
The TCE crane offers the safest, most efficient, and eco-friendly cranes up to SWL 50 tonnes.
It provides precise control with superior operator comfort, and because it operates at a higher speed, it improves turnover capacity performance by more than 10 per cent.
Usually employed for heavy-duty work, transloading cranes often run 24/7 particularly in regions with limited infrastructure and/or draft restrictions. This is to ensure the most efficient handling of bulk materials worldwide.
MacGregor’s new TCE crane optimises efficiency by electrifying the drive system. The crane uses around 60 per cent less energy than a hydraulic drive system when used with an energy storage system to maximise the benefits of the regenerated power.
CO2 emissions will subsequently be reduced by more than 5,500 tonnes within a typical lifecycle of a hydraulic crane. The lowered emissions are comparable to 1,200 gasoline cars travelling 20,000 kilometres annually.
Other notable advantages of the new MacGregor TCE crane include capital expenditure savings and decreased maintenance expenses without the need for oil, filter, or hose replacements.
With the option to integrate many automation functions including Auto-Grip and Auto-Drive, the TCE crane may be connected to the OnWatch Scout condition-based monitoring and predictive maintenance service.
With more than 580 electric cranes produced since 2007, decades of extensive customer experience in transloading operations culminated in the development of the TCE.
The crane is built on the most recent generation of electric drive technology, thus closing the gap in MacGregor’s electric crane portfolio.
