Reducing Hazards on Deck


Reducing Hazards on Deck

MacGREGOR Hydramarine’s facility (Kristiansand, Norway) is currently producing a number of cargo rail cranes (CRV) for various AHTS vessels and other production support craft. The addition of various remote-controlled technologies, such as the deck handling manipulator system (DHMS), is an added benefit to the CRV crane. Two key advantages of the DHMS system are that it allows for the crane’s standard winch functions to remain fully operational and it also provides a new gripper system capability. Consequently, no re-rigging is required for alternating between gripper and winch operations.

As the DHMS mechanism is remotely operated, it has the additional benefit of being fully controlled from the crane’s portable panel, so the necessity for heavy manual operations on the aft deck is substantially decreased. By removing personnel from dangerous working areas, crane solutions such as these make a significant contribution to overall safety particularly for the crew during anchor-handling operations at rigs and platforms while battling rough seas and harsh weather conditions.

DHMS is available both as optional equipment for new cranes, and as an upgrade alternative for existing ones. This device can complement current advanced load handling systems for any offshore AHTS and other production support vessels.
