Port Crane Inspection

Port cranes are major investments. We help make sure they're built correctly - to your specifications.

LRQA has dedicated teams for design appraisal, inspection and certification of port cranes to help our clients through the process of commissioning port equipment.

Our team is based in China, the epicenter of port crane construction, but our project managers and coordinators are based around the world, ready to cater to your schedule.
