KCI Konecranes To Supply To Ingalls

Thursday, August 19, 1999
KCI Konecranes VLC Corporation was granted the contract to provide one of the world's largest cranes to Ingalls Shipbuilding, a division of Litton Ship Systems. Known as Goliath, because of its unusually large size, the crane is one of fewer than 100 worldwide. The 660-ton capacity crane will allow Ingalls to assemble sections of ships that are triple the size than previous, thus utilizing dock space more efficiently. Resembling a giant sawhorse at 329 ft. (100 m) tall, the crane spans 411 ft. (125.2 m) and employs 96 wheels to travel down a delineated runway. Goliath also holds two trollies, dual self-controlled diesel power plants, and boasts AC variable frequency controls with built-in programmable logic.
