Short info I found
Constructed in 1975 ( General Dynamics ) for building LNG tankers, at one point the second largest shipbuilding crane in the world. 3,000 tons, weight of Goliath crane. The central girder weighs 1,200 tons.
"Goliath" is able to lift pieces weighting 1,200 tons. 1986 was the last year the crane was used in the Fore River shipyard.
Greek shipbuilder Sotirios Emmanouil stirred hopes for a revival in the late 1990s, when he modernized the site and repaired Goliath for the oil tanker construction he envisioned. Then he defaulted on federal loans before a single keel was ever laid, and Goliath has gathered fresh rust ever since.
Americans said that the steel is rusty and that the maintenance cost are enormous, they wanted to sell it for scrap, but then Korean / Romanian shipbuilders showed up.

Short video from GOLIATH

Best regards,

No problem my friend, I just want to see pictures of  "Goliath" when it will be assembled in Mangalia.
Well the technology of the crane is old, and steel is also rusty. What will they do, to keep it in good shape?
What kind of ships is Deawoo planing now to build in Mangalia with this huge crane?

Regards,
Kristijan Bracun

Salut Dragos,
Da, se vor construi si mineraliere, primul va fi deja gata peste cateva luni
Exista contracte ptr. mai multi ani ptr. diferite tipuri de nave.
Macaraua sosita recent urmeaza sa fie amplasata pe alta linie, in docul nr. 3 care era doc de reparatii, acum s-a renuntat la reparatii, se fac doar constructii noi.
Sa speram ca punerea ei pe pozitie si exploatarea acesteia se vor face fara probleme, oricum si celelalte doua sunt construite tot in anii '70.
Numai bine,
Adi
