At E-Crane we are proud of our track record. In a continuous effort to improve our servicing capabilities two (!) E-Crane branches have been set up in the past month.


First of all there is the 'E-Crane USA Texas Service Office' dedicated to provide daily maintenance as well as 24/7 service interventions to local industrial clients.


As a licensed service partner of Palfinger, our Belgium based 'E-Crane Offshore Services' focusses on  service and maintenance of hydraulic cranes installed on Offshore Wind Mills.


We are convinced that this is not the end but another beginning of something all our stakeholders will benefit from in the future.

* PICTURE OF THE MONTH: E-Crane Offshore Services

 E-Crane, licensed service partner

of Palfinger Marine





Palfinger Marine, known for its reliable, innovative and customized marine, offshore and windcranes, has signed a service contract with E-Crane making them a licensed service partner for the maintenance of Palfinger cranes. Specifically, this is for the wind turbines of the Thornton Bank. These cranes are managed by Senvion Benelux. The Belgian service hub of the German group Senvion was looking for a local partner that offers service at a good price.

Expertise and Customer focus

The first experiences of the cooperation, for example the repair of a platform crane during phase 1 of the Thornton Bank project, were defined by Senvion as goal driven. Senvion immediately acknowledged the expertise and the customer focus of E-Crane. Thanks to Senvion, E-Crane was brought into contact with Palfinger, and after a thorough audit, E-Crane was certified as a licensed service partner. E-Crane Offshore Services will cover repair and maintenance of the Palfinger windcranes. In the future, this partnership can be extended to installation and commissioning, and to other countries.

Ideal Partner

This partnership originated thanks to E-Crane's extensive know-how about the design and construction of hydraulic cranes as well as their professional service. E-Crane's location in Adegem lends itself to speed and flexibility, but also to service to other offshore clients with Palfinger installations. The combination of professionalism and expertise, a stable market position and the favorable location was more than enough reasons for Palfinger to choose E-Crane as a partner.

Martin Zauner, head of Business Unit Wind, likes to state it this way: "Their philosophy to only deliver the best available service at a competitive price matches Palfinger Marine's philosophy very well."

 E-Crane Supplier of the Month: Rexroth
E-Crane and Rexroth: A Long Lasting and Pleasant Collaboration
Erik Staes, Branch Manager of Mobile Applications at Bosch Rexroth NV says: "Since the establishment of Indusign in 1990's, there has  been a collaboration with Bosch Rexroth. Currently, I visit them for business on a monthly basis, and if there are new projects or special adjustments required by customer specifications, I discuss these directly and naturally solve them as quickly as possible."
Custom made components
Bosch Rexroth supplies many products from the high pressure spectrum to E-Crane. Among these are pumps from the A4VG series from 56cc to 250cc, A2FM motors, M7 manifold blocks and MHRB32 brake valves for the control and security of the cylinders. In addition, Bosch Rexroth also supplies custom-made valve blocks where needed. 

Erik: "Bosch Rexroth guarantees the good quality of the Rexroth components. Moreover, the teamwork of our employees offers all the technical support needed for new projects. Our logistics ensure that the various components are available, so that the different types of cranes can be built within the delivery time desired by the customer. That is, of course, very important!"
