In 1932, the Ardelt has invented the double jib level luffing principle – and since then has implemented further developments. The advantages of this system provide maximum cargo productivity. Many ports of the world “vouch” for the models of these cranes, which are well known and recognized for such characteristics as: ease of maintenance, resistance and construction reliability, high productivity, positioning accuracy and minimal swinging due to the shorter length of the ropes, as well as a shorter horizontal cargo moving way.


Double jib KONDOR cranes work in harbours in the whole world for many years and are classic of handling equipment, which are going in time with modern traditions owing to their constructors advanced development.

KONDOR portal cranes which are well-known and recognized owing to characteristics as: simplicity in care and technical service, resistance and construction reliability, high productivity, positioning accuracy and minimal swinging due to the shorter length of the ropes, as well as a shorter horizontal cargo moving way.

KONDOR cranes are universal for different kinds of bulky and single cargo handling and are ideally suitable for container processing in river and sea harbors. Crane models are presented in three modifications; each of them has specific characteristics depending of requiring capacity.


The TUKAN portal crane is efficient, safe, reliable and indispensable when working in ports. It is especially popular at universal terminals, where it can be effectively used for transshipment of almost any type of bulk and single cargo, and is also perfect for handling containers in river and sea ports.
TUKAN crane models are presented in three modifications, each of which has specific characteristics depending on the required lifting capacity.

Tukan 750

Developed and destined mainly for cargo assembly in inner ports. Having outreach capacity up to 27m and portal width 10m it can easily handle all ships, which are going on inner ways, and also successfully service first generation container crafts with capacity up to 1200 TEU.

Tukan 1500

Designed for work in sea harbors. Different outreach capacity is 32, 35, 40 and 45 meters makes it possible to service ships from Handimax class (32m) to Capasize (45) and third generation container crafts.

Grande Tukan 3000

The biggest crane have outreach capacity from 50 up to 63m. Having a rated portal track width 15m the crane can unload bulk goods effectively from ships Capasize class and service container crafts Post-Panamax class.


PELIKAN is a balancing portal crane and one of the latest developments of the KOCKS ARDELT KRANBAU manufacturing plant. When handling scrap, the balance cranes significantly outperform traditional rope cranes. PELIKAN Balance Cranes offer unrivaled efficiency and reloading speed. Due to its large reach and carrying capacity, PELIKAN can replace several units of mobile equipment, and the increased depth of lowering makes it possible to use the crane for unloading ships.
The crane can be flexibly adapted to local conditions due to various portal designs, and due to the possibility of quick replacement of load-carrying devices, the crane can be used universally for various types of handling.

A characteristic feature of the crane is the mechanical connection of the front arm and the moving counterweight by means of a tension bar, which reduces the impact on the crane boom pivot point and reduces the energy required to change the boom reach, which is a great advantage over excavators. The grab is attached mechanically, directly to the boom, which excludes the use of ropes and makes it possible to use it for crushing scrap.
It is possible to manufacture a crane with various types of portal – fixed, on a rail or crawler track, it is also possible to execute other versions on special order.

Due to the patented balanced counterweight principle, PELIKAN is more cost-effective than an excavator and faster than a rope crane.
