SCALDON BV, based near the harbour of Vlissingen, specializes in high-end (offshore) lifting solutions, such as cranes, A-frame and winches, built on experience but designed around your company’s specific needs. If you aim higher, with SCALDON you will reach further.

The brand SCALDON may be relatively new to the market, but the people behind it share over a decade of experience in hoisting equipment, design and construction of hydraulic and electrical control systems. Structural parts are produced and machined in house. Our hydraulic solutions are based on the best components currently available. We have developed our own online control system – based on the latest technology, PLC controlled, with remote access to your crane for improved reliability and maximum safety.

Cranes

Fixed boom crane

A fixed boom crane provides a robust and low maintenance solution for all kinds of applications, typically these cranes are used as store cranes, hose handling and offshore platform use. If deck space is available a fixed boom is in general the simplest and cost effective solution. SCALDON designs and manufactures a range of sizes of fixed boom cranes up to a fixed boom length of 30 mtr. Our fixed boom cranes have a robust design and components are selected to meet the durability demands in the extreme marine environment.

Knuckle boom cranes

The major advantage of a knuckle boom crane is that the distance between boom tip and load is kept as small as possible, which provides better control of the load and a safer lifting operation. Another advantage is that it requires less deck area for storage when not in use. SCALDON designs and produces knuckle boom cranes to meet customer specific needs and requirements. Knuckle boom cranes are installed on fixed platform near the quayside, on seagoing vessels for dredge and offshore application and on floating and fixed platforms at sea.

Telescopic boom cranes

If deck space is limited, generally the case on smaller vessels, then telescopic boom cranes may offer a preferable lifting solution. At SCALDON, we design, produce and install telescopic boom cranes in fixed boom or knuckle boom designs. We have built up an experience with cranes up to an overturning moment of 1000Tm on the slewing ring. All cranes can be equipped with an integrated Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) in the crane column or with a standalone diesel driven HPU in a “back-pack” mounted container at the back of the crane column.

Equipment

A-frames

SCALDON is widely experienced in the design of fixed and telescopic A-frames, for all kinds of applications, including load handling at sea, such as ploughs, anchors or buoys and geotechnical survey or gathering seismic data. A winch can be delivered with the A-frame with umbilical cord and/or hoisting cable with special features such as Active Heave Compensation (AHC) and Constant tension (CT). To operate the A-frames a Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) can be installed in a container on the deck or inboard the vessel.

Winches

Winches are used for hoisting and pulling on cranes, ship decks and platforms. At SCALDON we custom build a wide range of winches up to 100Ton, according to any Class approval required such as DNV-GL, LR, ABS, BV. All winches are designed and certified according to the latest European norm EN-13852-1/2, including Manual Overload Protection System (MOPS), Automatic Overload Protection System (AOPS) and Constant Tension (CT) systems. Our high quality components maximise system safety and reliability, and minimise down time.

Hydraulic Power Units

To efficiently power our cranes and A-frames, SCALDON designs and builds a range of Hydraulic Power Units (HPU), to suit the requirements of your specific situation. Our HPU range varies from HPU’s built into the crane column to standalone diesel driven HPU’s for operation in ATEX zones. In the design and construction of our HPU’s we rely on the best hydraulic components currently available in the market, aiming for the safest possible operation and maintenance free reliability.

Hose handling equipment

In the specific area of hose handling equipment, SCALDON has a wide range of different applications available. Our solutions include a range of cranes and beams that can handle all types of hoses in the safest and most efficient way possible. Our hose handling equipment is mostly operated through Radio Remote Control (RRC) and powered by a standalone HPU. All hose handling equipment is designed and constructed from materials suited for the demanding coastal areas and marine environment and is suitable explosion proof environments.

Engineering

Engineering

The SCALDON engineering team consists of both project leaders and technical designers, combining forces in the design of any type of crane. Our high-end engineering designs are made according to various classification society requirements, typically they are also custom built to meet the client’s specific needs and demands. Our engineers work with 3D design software through all stages of the project; from the original drawing accompanying our offer, to the finalization of the last details just before production.

Hydraulic expertise

SCALDON is well experienced in the design of high-end hydraulic solutions. Our designated hydraulic engineering team relies on long-term and a broad-spectrum of experience in the design and delivery of hydraulic systems. All hydraulic hoses are pressure tested and flushed afterwards to provide a reliable hydraulic system to our clients. To ensure a maintenance free application of the hydraulic components our systems are based and built using high-end components and sufficient filtration is applied in each system that we deliver.

Electrical expertise

In recent years SCALDON took on many inspiring challenges in the field of electrical control systems for cranes, winches and several shipboard industrial application. As a result we gained a deep and wide experience in various applications and environments. Recent developments within the company reinforced the implementation of the latest state of the art technology. Presently remote access, control and operation are possible from our main office thus enabling us to assist the end-user worldwide 24/7.

Services

Refurbishment

Our cranes, winches and A-frames are solidly constructed from durable components. However, due to extensive use and rough conditions, refurbishment, overhaul or maintenance maybe required. SCALDON has a well-equipped in-house facility for minor repairs up to complete refurbishment of cranes, winches and A-frames. Being a leader in the latest technology of hydraulic and electrical systems, we can not only revive any system but also add new technology to refurbished components for a problem free use for many years to come.

Spare parts

For all cranes and equipment we have delivered, we keep spare parts in stock. Our services reach even further where we will also provide parts and service if you might be using another brand of crane. Whatever your request, we will act on it as soon as possible. If replacement of spare parts requires the supervision of a field engineer, you can rely on our dedicated service team, who are fully certified for the oil and gas industry (Bosiet 5A/5C) as well as for the wind sector (fully GWO certified).

Interventions/ Inspections

Testing facility

In our testing facility in Borssele, our cranes are tested at full load and speed.
During the Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT), a surveyor from the classification society and the Client can witness the FAT of the crane. A test HPU is present for cranes which are to be used as part of hydraulic loop systems on board of a vessel/platform. Cranes with HPU’s are tested with electrical power supply only. In case of a diesel driven crane, the test will be done without any power supply. A range of test weights is present to execute the load and overload test.
