Cargo stabiliser system for knuckle crane
CSU is tool specially designed for use on offshore cranes to facilitate easier cargo handling from vessel to stationary platforms. Although unit is primarily designed to be used on knuckle boom crane it can be easily adapted for installation on lattice boom crane.
Light weight and compact wire frame design consists of main frame with two boom jibs which can be folded when not in use.
Main frame is designed to enable simple installation on crane boom, once secured in position CSU is capable of supporting cargo during offloading operation, preventing any unwanted movement.
Cargo stabilization is achieved through two additional wire ropes connected to cranes main hook.
Two each independently radio operated electrical winches integrated into main frame are used for wire rope tensioning, each winch is capable of pulling 50kN of force and if necessary unit is equipped with additional pulleys for increase of pulling force.
