Large loads, tight spaces and challenging environments
Petrochemical plants and oilfields still often rely on cumbersome equipment such as overhead cranes and winches to move heavy loads. But for the movement of heavy production equipment on wheels, this can be cumbersome and inflexible.
Petrochemical plants need compact material handling solutions that deliver the controlled movement of loads in tight spaces to maximise safety – even in the toughest of environments.
Compact, robust electric tugs for petrochemical plants
With compact machine designs, ATEX protection and robust constructions, electric tugs are ideal solutions for meeting the challenges of the petrochemical industry.
Delivering the controlled movement of heavy loads in tight spaces and around corners, a single operator can safely move loads of 70,000kg and beyond.
Whether working on chequer plating, grating or rough, wet surfaces, electric tugs provide consistent performance and traction, guaranteeing the seamless movement of equipment.
Benefits for petrochemical plants
Used to deliver the safe, controlled movement of loads in the petrochemical and oil and gas industry, electric tugs maximise safety in hazardous environments.
