English term or phrase: crawl beam + giraffe
"This must be a local crawl beam (giraffe)".
"Pump station has crawl beams and hoists."

pont roulant + chèvre
Explanation:
Not very academic English to designate these parts, should be beam crawl and crane, but you will find below some pictures to illustrate the topic; the clue was given by the "pump station": these are items commonly found there for the maintenance.

hoist:

chèvre:

The latest reference is probably the most useful: bilingual, with proper and probably authoritative vocabulary in the field.
You will see that a hoist may be many things: palan, chèvre, sometimes I even saw the meaning "cric" or "manipulateur"
