Today we want to show you one of our latest facilities in United Kingdom made for our client Sheffield Forgemasters International Ltd: an open winch on a double girder overhead crane with auxiliary hoist and a lifting capacity of 80/20 t.

Sheffield Forgemasters is a heavy engineering firm located in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. The company specializes in the production of large bespoke steel castings and forgings, as well as standard rolls, ingots and bars. Sheffield Forgemasters traces its origins to a 1750.

The company specializes in forged and cast steel components for the defense, engineering, nuclear, offshore, petrochemical, and steel processing industries worldwide.

Sheffield Forgemasters currently has the capacity for pouring the largest single casting (570 tons) in Europe. The two forging presses in use can exert a pressure of 4,500 tons and 10,000 tons on a billet of steel. The 4,500-ton press was installed in 2010 to replace a 1,500-ton press which dated back to 1897 and was originally steam powered, and after several upgrades became hydraulically operated.

GH, through our oldest official partner in the United Kingdom, Professional lifting Services, LTD ( has supplied several cranes to Sheffield Forgemasters since early 2000 and the last year has supplied several cranes for this great company in the United Kingdom.

Installation of a double girder gantry crane in Balenciaga Shipyard

On the 16th June we started with the transport of structural components and the installation of a double girder gantry crane with a capacity of 100/10/50 t, a span of 25.62 m + 9.5 m useful cantilever, a height of 23.25 m above level 0 + 4.8 m pit depth, at Balenciaga shipyard in Zumaia. We wanted to record the whole process in this video and share it with you.

The assembly of the installation lasted three days and began with the transfer of the structural sub-assemblies that make up the gantry crane and the 39-metre beams from GH Headquearters in Beasain, to Zumaia. This had to be done at night with the help of special vehicles along with police escorts.

During the days that followed, GH operators with the help of workers from Grúas Usabiaga mounted the end carriages, positioned the fixed and articulated legs and installed the main and auxiliary trolley, along with other tasks. Finally, on the morning of the 21st June, with everything practically assembled, the last adjustments and tests were carried out.

The installation of this 100/10/50 t double girder gantry crane in Balenciaga, transforms its slipway carriage into a second slipway for the construction of boats, which will allow the company to build its boats from the first component to the last, also offering the possibility of building two boats in parallel.
