Save the Crane

Built in 1942 and dubbed a “whirley crane” for its ability to turn 360 degrees, BMI’s Bethlehem Steel Clyde Model 17 DE 90 crane was instrumental in Bethlehem Steel’s prolific World War II shipbuilding effort. With your help, the BMI crane will live up to its legacy as a proud shining symbol of Baltimore and an awe-inspiring gateway to the BMI experience. Learn more here.
