Found on the web: Balanced Dredging with E-Crane

One doesn’t usually think about cranes when talking about dredging, but cranes form a big part of the niche business.

The Belgian company has tons (pun intended) of experience engineering their balance cranes. During that time, their equilibrium crane has more than proven itself in the scrap industry, as half of their machines operate in scrap yards throughout...
