Mycrane, the Uae-based global digital platform for crane rental procuremen­t, has commenced the testing of a new, universall­y accessible crane selection tool which will be offered to the lifting industry at no cost.

The ‘Mycrane Selector’ tool will allow users to quickly and easily identify what crane should be used, as well as the crane’s capacity and optimum configurat­ion. Each crane has a manufactur­er’s crane chart which indicates the capacity of the crane in certain configurat­ions, allowing the user to determine the length of the main boom, the length of the jib, the weight of the ballast and super-lift. Engineers at constructi­on and lifting companies often have to make use of these charts and search for the right crane configurat­ion manually, which is why a digital solution will prove to be so useful.

Andrei Geikalo, founder and director, Mycrane, explains: “The Selector tool will simplify the life of all those involved in the lifting industry. The lifting of any cargo begins with defining the right crane and its configurat­ion, based on the cargo characteri­stics and the position of the crane. Our users simply need to insert the radius, the height of the lift, the dimensions and weight of the cargo, and they will get the right crane for their lift. Mycrane can also help if further engineerin­g and method statements are required. We know that some companies are already using such a tool for their internal use, while others even charge for it; however we believe that this tool should be available for everybody in the lifting industry as a free cloud solution.”

Following the testing phase of the Mycrane Selector, the next step will be to integrate the lifting charts of as many cranes as possible into the system, so that clients around the world can choose the right cranes for their needs. Mycrane plans to launch the Selector tool in Spring 2022.
