Vistal Group, a manufacturer of large-size, specialist steel structures in Poland, executing contracts for clients in Poland and abroad, has won another contract in the marine & offshore segment for manufacturing and assembly of two Grab Unloader port cranes. The contract includes production of port cranes, complete assembly, operational tests and delivery to Algeria. The value of the contract is PLN 50.9 million.

Vistal Group, as part of a contract for a Spanish contractor, will build two cranes weighing 1300 tonnes each and with a lifting capacity of 52 tonnes. The work will be completed with the delivery and installation of the cranes on the target track in the port of Djen Djen, Algeria, using ship’s cranes.

This is our first crane contract of such a broad scope, which we are able to realise thanks to our long-standing experience, adequate production and technological background and know-how. For the last 4 years, we have been intensively developing the production of steel constructions of cranes for the port infrastructure within the marine and offshore segment, systematically extending the scope to include the assembly of devices and equipment. The new contract opens the way to comprehensive production of crane and industrial equipment. It is worth emphasising that it is our first significant contract on the African market – says Ryszard Matyka, the CEO of Vistal Gdynia SA  More
