The International Crane Stakeholders Assembly (ICSA) held its eighth meeting in Munich in April during the Bauma exhibition.
Hosted by ESTA and FEM – the European Materials Handling Federation – the meeting discussed a draft position paper on the use of cranes on barges, and developments to crane standards EN13000, B30.5 and B30.30. It also debated a draft position paper on the transport and logistics of delivering large wind farm components onto site.
Apart from ESTA and FEM, organisations attending the meeting were the Crane Industry Council of Australia; the Crane Rental Association of Canada; the Specialized Carriers and Rigging Association; the Association of Equipment Manufacturers; and the Japan Crane Association.
The next ICSA meeting will be held in Las Vegas during the 2020 Conexpo exhibition. For more information, go to the ICSA’s new website at www.icsa-crane.org
