Belgium manufacturer The Sarens Group (Wolvertem, Belgium) claims its SGC-120 giant crane is the only true heavy-lift crane in the world.

Sarens Giant Crane (SGC‐120), is a 120,000 tonne beast, which the manufacturer claims is capable of lifting 3,200 tonnes.

"This innovative and versatile heavy-lift crane is the product of the combined engineering efforts of Sarens and its subsidiary, Rigging International," said the company.

According to Sarens the crane meets all US and European Lift Crane Standards and is CE certified. It added that the crane is designed to accommodate the heavy-lifting requirements for refineries, the oil and gas industry, mining, offshore platforms and third-generation components for nuclear power plants.

The construction and testing of the SGC‐120 was completed in March 2011.
