Ace Cranes used in one of the largest Aluminium Smelters

Design, Manufacture, Supply Install, testing and commission of :

  • 10+10t – 4 Nos Potroom construction crane
  • 20+20t – 4 Nos Potroom construction crane.
  • 30t+30t – 2 Nos Potroom construction crane.
  • 10+10t – 2 Nos PTM Maintenance shop construction crane.

  • Span: 24m Height of lift: 9.56m

Cranes were used during the construction phase of the Potrooms handling potshells, busbars and superstructures. Power for crane operation was from crane mounted diesel generators as no permanent power supply systems installed at that time. On completion of the Construction, cranes were removed, modified as required and relocated for use in other operational areas of the Smelter, Ace Crane Systems also supplied 28 additional ABUS cranes to Emirates Aluminium, with capacities from 2.5tonnes up to 30tonnes, for operation in workshops, stores and plant maintenance areas, Ace Engineering provided complete on-site service support 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for the duration of the Construction period.

Crane in Modular mobile workshop
Crane in Modular mobile workshop

One of the smallest crane we would have manufactured till date but serves the purpose in the middle of the nowhere.

    Picture says it all.
  • Its key feature is its mobility. It can be transported easily on standard trailer.
  • Crane can travel outside the container for loading and offloading purpose.
  • Up to 5 ton capacity with 2 meter span.
  • Hydraulic operated retractable long travel beams
  • Self-sufficient workshop with inbuilt power supply to room, office and welfare facility.


ABUS EOT and jib cranes at a pump manufacturer’s site in Sweden

New jib cranes and EOT cranes were used in addition to the reused cranes. A pillar jib crane of the VS type with a height of over 8 metres, a load capacity of 4 tonnes and a jib arm length of 5 metres was supplied among others. This jib crane features an electric wire rope hoist and was mounted in the underground car park. It serves the loading area on the level above through an opening between the levels. All movements of the crane are electric due to the SWL of 4 tonnes, i.e. the crane features electric slewing as well as electric trolley travelling. The project also includes a 32 metre long crane track with three single girder underslung EOT cranes of the EDL type and each of them comes with two hoists with load capacities of 4 tonnes each. The underslung EOT cranes feature rolled section girders and screwed main girder connections. This type of crane is particularly suited to complicated space and construction conditions as the crane track is mounted onto the ceiling instead of onto pillars. In addition, lower trolley end approach dimensions allow the optimal use of the exiting bay width. The main girder slots in between the end carriages which means that the highest hook position can be optimised also. A separate crane track was fitted with a single girder EOT crane of the ELV type with two electric chain hoists with SWLs of 1 tonne each which give it a total load capacity of 2 tonnes in this case. The control of the crane, an ABUS radio remote control ABURemote Button, allows the hoists to be used individually as well as in tandem. The jib crane is also controlled by radio remote control so that the crane user will be able to move loads while standing in a safe place and keeping an eye on all crane movements.

Four workshop cranes complete the building’s crane park: Jib cranes of the LS type with safe working loads of 1 tonne each and jib arm lengths of 3 metres. These cranes are used to move smaller components directly onto the work benches of the work places in order to check them for possible damages. Slewing and trolley travelling are manual as the SWLs are quite inferior compared to the big VS jib crane. The electric chain hoists are operated via push button pendants on these cranes.

Thus the ABUS EOT cranes and jib cranes work together on two levels for an optimised material flow. The EOT cranes transport heavier loads across the entire bay while the smaller jib cranes are serving the work stations: they make it quick and efficient to load individual work benches.
