Shipyards and Ports Crane Rental
Bigge offers a wide variety of lifting solutions tailored to shipyard projects and ports in the United States.
In April, Bigge engineered and conducted the transport and launch of a historic tall ship into the waters of San Francisco bay from the shores of Sausalito, CA. Named after a prominent shipbuilder and designer, the Matthew Turner is a wooden brigantine schooner built by volunteers from Turner’s original plans dating back over 100 years. Our crews utilized a 6-dolly hydraulic transport system pulled by two prime movers.
Operating within the confines of the shipbuilding facility’s limited space, Bigge carefully rigged its equipment into place beneath the vessel and transported the assembly to water’s edge. The launch ramp was temporarily reinforced and extended with steel plates to ensure clearance of the trailer once the ship was afloat. When complete, the Matthew Turner will serve as an experiential learning platform for Bay Area youth. You can learn more about the project by watching the video.
