The Arctic Tuk has executed a variety of heavy or complex lifts at the docks of Port Metro Vancouver, Nanaimo Port Authority and Greater Victoria Harbour Authority, including projects at Esquimalt Graving Dock. We at AHL are very excited to contribute to the capabilities of Western Canada’s ports, and we look forward to continued growth and opportunities for heavy cargo in and out of Canada with our heavy lift cranes.
A unique and specialized piece of equipment, the Arctic Tuk is outfitted with a ballast control system, full anchoring ability, deck winches, compressed air and electricity. The ballast system uses constant water volume which is forced by pressurized air between the ballast tanks within the hull, allowing complete stability and total heel control during lifting and swinging of a load. This system is controlled from the control tower by the ballast operator, and is digitally synchronized with the crane cab gauges for the crane operator.
In addition to providing crane service, AHL can arrange shipment of cargo to or from anywhere. If you have heavy cargo to move, Amix Heavy Lift can help.
