KenzFigee has designed a new rope actuated knuckle boom subsea crane. The crane is to improve operational safety and workability and offers a lifting capacity from approximately 400 to 2000 tonnes.
The crane was designed using feedback from clients. New features include a high Safe Working Load of up to 2000 tonnes, decreased hook weight, reduced pendulum length, full deck coverage including reach at minimum radius and added lifting height and reach for tall objects.
‘Although one of the world’s oldest crane manufacturers, feedback and dialogue with our clients is fundamental to understand their daily operations and challenges in order to adjust and improve designs to their specific needs and requirements,’ says Sietse Gerssen, VP Sales KenzFigee. ‘New technology is sometimes very close to existing principles, yet innovative in how all is brought together. The essence of this new subsea crane design is configuring proven technology in a different way.’
