    The crane is the pontoon crane "Svanen", the swan. It's the only one of it's kind and can lift 10000 tons.
    It was among others used to build the Great Belt Bridge the Oresund Bridge and also constructions in Canada.
    On july 11th. 2005 it left Malmoe heading Rotterdam to build a windmill. It was in Malmoe for 5 years.

    Absolutly wrong.
    You must be blind if you can't the see differences between the crane constructions.

    You can find the Svanen here in Malmoe, too:
    55░ 37' 0.5" N, 13░ 1' 26.33" E

    And it's only able to lift 7.800 tons.

    This floating crane is the ASIAN HERCULES II, which was needed to dismantle the Kockumskranen.

    Kockumskranen (Kockums crane) was a 138 metre tall crane, formerly of the Swedish shipyard Kockums in Malm÷. It was built in 1973-1974 and capable of lifting 1500 tonnes. It was however never used much because of the Swedish shipyard crisis of the late 1970s and 1980s. It was used the last time in 1997 for lifting the foundations of the high pillars of the Oresund Bridge. The crane was a landmark of Malm÷ from its time of construction until its dismantling to be shipped to Ulsan in South Korea in summer 2002.

    First of all. No one here is blind, as far as I know. So don't come with such statements. You can say it in a deacent way like you would be talked too. But you are are really new to this so you will be surprised someday.

    Secondly, when I wrote my answer for some reason it showed the Svanen. Sometimes GE does something different as you want. Locations etc.
    So McMaster_DE is absolutely right, and I know it's the Asian Hercules too.
