GHOLEA for Start-ups and companies in the process of creation, with a business project related to the fields of activity GH CRANES.


This initiative is aimed at Start-ups and companies in the process of creation, with a business project related to the fields of activity GH CRANES.


GH CRANES is interested in business projects in one of the following areas:

Safety systems

Safety first. Safety in the handling of our cranes is the number one priority for GH CRANES. The continuous evolution of the state of the art in the field of sensors and wireless communication systems provides an opportunity to explore new ways to equip our cranes with advanced security systems.


The automation of cranes is no longer an option, but rather a necessity in many productive processes where industrial cranes operate. True to our commitment to provide more standard features at a competitive price, we set ourselves the challenge of evolving our portfolio of existing automation solutions to the next level.

Digitisation and data analysis

At GH we have carried out a strategic analysis of the impact that the fourth industrial revolution has on our business. Our commitment to taking advantage of the advances in the Internet of things, connectivity and digitisation of processes have allowed us to develop new services geared towards after sales that we want to develop with your help.

Safety First

Automation, collision avoidance and scale systems are a few add on items that increase equipment operation safety.

Manufacturers of cranes for the metals distribution sector are designing their technologies to provide greater levels of safety for operators, and offering improved data analysis.

Cranes and handling systems used in the metals distribution category have to be able to withstand the rigours of lifting extremely heavy materials, as well as the ebbs and flows of production which result in intense, peak periods of demand.

As a result, suppliers are increasingly offering equipment with enhanced safety features, plus the addition of monitoring tools that ensure operators can keep track of the safe working period (SWP) of their machines.

Customers are becoming more aware of the need to monitor how much of the design life or SWP of a crane has been used up, and how much remains.


Dovetailing with operator safety, reliability is also seen as a crucial demand from the metals distribution sector.

“Technology has to be designed for the peak use period during the day, which may often be three to four hours of intense production. Averages don’t really work in this sector!”

Juan Agirre, Special Solutions Business Unit Sales Director at GH Cranes and Components, notes that customers are increasingly looking for reliability, as well as robustness, high speeds, sway control, plus accurate load positioning and identification.

Projects GH been involved with in recent months include for steel manufacturer Acerinox, which was supplied with five cranes and a motorised hook to handle stainless steel coils with tong.

In addition, the company sold one automatic crane for handling steel sheets with an electromagnet to a steel service centre in northern Spain, as well as ten cranes for handling steel coils for the automotive industry for Gonvvama in China.

Synchronized EOT cranes to work in the same building of different lifting height

Due of the high price of the land in Singapore, is very common to make high level buildings to maximize the working space.

The cranes are installed with specific technology to avoid the collision between them.  An improved safety device has been installed in all equipment who allows that only one crane in each level can work in the charging area, avoiding any collision between other cranes of different levels in lifting movement.

The installation has been done with our distributor MPH Cranes in a 3 level  building for  one of the most renewed developer company.

The building has 8 EOT single girder 10 Tons Capacity Cranes.
