Hiab Off Shore Cranes can be combined with multiple attachments, allowing products to be handled without additional equipment. They provide a safer, more versatile and more efficient off shore crane solution.

What is the Function of an Off Shore Crane?

Common functions of an off shore crane involve transferring loads and cargo between supply ships, barges, or semi-submersible platforms, in addition to aiding oil drilling and production tasks. For operations involving heavy lifting, offshore cranes are mounted on various structures such as barges, semi-submersibles, and other vessels or platforms.

What Type of Crane is Used in Offshore?

A Knuckle Boom Crane is commonly used in offshore settings. This type of crane is particularly beneficial due to its unique articulated design, which allows for greater flexibility and precision in lifting and moving loads. The knuckle boom's compact structure makes it ideal for the limited space on offshore platforms, while its ability to fold into a smaller size when not in use maximizes available space. Additionally, knuckle boom cranes offer excellent load handling capabilities, even in challenging sea conditions, making them a versatile and efficient choice for offshore crane operations, including cargo handling and supporting oil drilling activities.
