Our Proficiency

Material Transport

Cable crane systems excel in transporting a diverse range of materials across various applications, irrespective of terrain complexities and payload requirements. Our expertise ensures seamless and efficient material transport in any setting.

Personnel Safety Systems

Ensuring the safety of all individuals involved in maintenance and surveillance activities is a paramount concern. Our state-of-the-art surveillance systems guarantee uncompromised safety at all times, addressing the challenges associated with personnel safety with the highest standards.


Our versatile winches serve multiple functions simultaneously, exhibiting efficiency and precision. Whether transporting materials, machinery, or personnel, our winches stand as reliable companions, demonstrating unwavering performance in transport, securing, and rescue operations.

Dam and Bridge Construction

In the realm of dam and bridge construction, our cable crane systems operate with precision, safety, and speed. They facilitate the transportation of materials, equipment, and personnel at considerable heights and over extensive distances, ensuring the success of projects with exacting standards.

Pipeline Construction

Extreme environmental conditions, steep slopes, and rocky terrains often pose challenges that push traditional methods to their limits in pipeline construction. Our cable crane systems provide efficient and sustainable transport solutions, overcoming these obstacles and delivering exceptional performance in demanding environments.

Our Diverse Sectors


The complexities of tight spaces, profound depths, and heavy materials define the intricacies of mining construction sites. Prioritizing the absolute safety of all individuals involved, our shaft winches play a crucial role. Deployed for material transport, as service, or rescue winches, they ensure the secure and efficient operation of mining sites. Our specialized surveillance systems further enable comprehensive monitoring and maintenance, reinforcing safety protocols.

Mountain Construction Sites

Navigating rivers, lakes, mountains, and steep terrains presents seemingly insurmountable challenges for transportation. Our cable crane systems provide weather-independent, eco-friendly solutions tailored to the unique demands of mountain construction sites. Offering cost-effective and efficient operations, they establish access precisely where needed, even operating around the clock, seven days a week.

Oil and Gas

In the dynamic realm of oil and gas, where pipelines seldom run straight, our highly professional cable crane systems offer well-thought-out solutions. Addressing curves, slopes, sheer terrain, and climatic differences, they contribute explicitly to project success and the long-term usability of pipelines. Their precision ensures optimal positioning of pipes and facilitates required excavation and reinstatement work.

Bridge Construction

The distinctive challenges of long distances, great heights, and the diverse materials and machinery required characterize bridge construction. Through meticulous project planning, maximum precision, speed, and unwavering quality, our cable crane systems guarantee a smooth process throughout the entire construction period. Safely transporting material, machinery, and personnel to desired locations, they play a pivotal role in the success of bridge construction projects.

Dam Construction

Dam construction sites, often situated in challenging terrains, benefit from our high-performance cable crane systems, inherited from ThyssenKrupp. Operating in all three axes of space (X-, Y-, and Z-axes), these crane units provide accessibility to every area of the construction site, significantly enhancing efficiency. The substantial transport volume they handle contributes to the overall success of dam construction projects.

Hydro Power

The construction of hydropower plants poses formidable challenges, including steep sloping terrain, wide gorges, impassable landscapes, and massive water masses. Our cable crane systems overcome these obstacles, serving as a safe and cost-effective long-term solution for accessing difficult project conditions and ensuring the success of hydropower projects.
