Heat and dust were no match for proven STAHL CraneSystems lifting technology. High-performance lifting solutions that could operate in harsh environments were needed to effectively lift heavy concrete parts for Egyptian manufacturer ECPC Company.
One of the many challenges of a fast-growing Egyptian population is overcoming the increasing traffic. Egypt is, therefore, investing heavily in infrastructure projects such as countrywide expansion of roads, bridges, and railway lines as well as the metro lines in Cairo and the Nile and Suez Canal waterways.
ECPC Company is one of the leading manufacturers of prefabricated concrete parts in Egypt for road and tunnel construction as well as concrete pipes for drinking water supply and sewage systems. To serve the growing demands of the Egyptian market, ECPC decided to expand its factory with two portal cranes. The contract was awarded to the company International Crane Factory, a certified partner of STAHL CraneSystems.
Hoists and components were manufactured in the STAHL CraneSystems factory in Künzelsau. Each crane is equipped with an AS 7 wire rope hoist in twin implementation with double girder. As the ropes of the twin hoist run in opposite directions simultaneously, the concrete parts are lifted and lowered without any sideways movement of the hook. To handle the prefabricated parts, the two portal cranes can be operated individually or together.
The reliable technology of STAHL CraneSystems is ideal for the hot and dusty environment of Egypt. All components are designed to withstand harsh conditions and ambient temperatures up to +113 °F. Using the standardized, tried-and-tested components from STAHL CraneSystems, it was possible to find a high-performing, maintenance-friendly solution to fit exact customer needs.
ECPC Company is one of the largest manufacturers of precast concrete parts in Egypt.
