CRANE SERVICE & MAINTENANCE ON THE AIRCRAFT
Norwegian Air Shuttle, the largest airline in Scandinavia, has taken delivery of a Unic URW 547 mini crane from Unic Norwegian distributor Knutsen Maskin.
The crane is to be used for service and maintenance work on the aircrafts. This machine offers a maximum lifting height of 18.2m and lifting capacity of 4t to tackle any lifting challenge.
An option of additional length is given with a quickly installed searcher hook, with angles varying from 0° to 60º and a lifting capacity of up to 500kg.
Anders Kiel of Knutsen Maskin AS said: “The fact that the design of the aircraft hangars don’t allow overhead cranes normally makes the service and maintenance work on the aircraft quite a challenge. But the Unic mini cranes are extremely portable and quick to set up and versatile make them ideal for a such applications. With the 400v system and radio remote control the advantages of the mini crane compared to other solutions made the choice for the customer easy.”
