The SGC‐120 is the only third-generation, 120,000-ton-meter crane constructed. The crane has a lifting capacity of 3,200 metric tons and is designed to accommodate the heavy-lifting requirements for refineries, the oil and gas industry, mining, offshore platforms and third-generation components for nuclear power plants. The construction and testing of the SGC‐120 was completed in March 2011.

The SGC-120 meets all U.S. and European Lift Crane Standards and is CE certified.

Its features include:

  • Reliable heavy lifting machinery with high load moment capacity
  • Limited footprint and low ground-bearing pressures have minimal impact on other site works. No foundations are needed due to the compact and stable ring design.
  • Counterweights of 3,600 metric tons (36 containers of 40 feet) of locally sourced material, which greatly reduces shipping costs
  • On-site flexibility: Reliable and easily operated hydraulic winches provide excellent and efficient load raising and lowering.
  • Flexible worldwide transportation in cost‐effective standard shipping containers (approximately 155 containers)
  • Versatile lifting machine, powered by 12 diesel engines
