The Department of National Defense land operations have 20 Krupp cranes for field engineering and recovery which were no longer supported by the original equipment manufacturer. CME submitted a proposal to develop ways to refurbish these cranes to a fully acceptable working condition. They were dismantled, inspected, repaired or refurbished mechanically, hydraulically and electronically. A modern load-monitoring and alarm system were installed to guide the operation of rapid yet safe deployment. Each machine had unique damage and wear and is now fully operational.
