Today's increasingly large and complex oil platforms typically require many types of highly specialized, reliable lifting equipment — not only for on-site erection, but also for efficient operation once they're in place.

At Amhoist, we have the experience and engineering expertise to design and build lifting equipment for every type of energy project. Our standard marine cranes come in capacities of 30 to 3,000 tons; larger sizes can be custom-engineered for specific applications. Current Amhoist products range from huge barge- and ship-mounted revolvers to the new Sea Horse pedestal crane for materials handling aboard offshore oil rigs.

Lucker Pullers — our revolutionary linear hydraulic "cable grip" devices — can be used singly or combined in different ways for an endless variety of lifting, pulling, and positioning tasks.

Because they're low in profile and pack a lot of power into an efficient package, they can be used in applications that would be impractical for bulkier mechanical winches and windlasses.

We also manufacture American stiffleg derricks in many configurations and sizes for use on barges, ships, platforms, or gantries. They offer excellent cost efficiency and adaptability with low maintenance.
