Cranes and Port Machinery

Cranes are the lifeblood of every port and container terminal – and maintenance downtime is both expensive and disruptive, even when it is carefully scheduled. That’s why more and more ports and terminals are specifying protective coating systems from Hempel.

With a strong protective coating, port and terminal cranes can remain more productive for longer. A robust coating protects the crane from wear and tear, helping extend the crane’s lifetime and reducing the need for maintenance. All this leads to a higher return on investment for port and terminal owners.

This is why Hempel has become the world’s leading suppliers of protective coatings to the crane industry, working with customers such as Fantuzzi Reggiane, Noell, ZPMC, Liebherr and Paceco. Over the past years, Hempel has supplied high quality coating to over 1500 large port cranes in China.
