True Marine Cranes
Some crane distributors are selling “marine cranes” that are simply truck cranes that have been modified. True marine cranes work on a platform that rolls and moves. Listing, pitching and rolling occur at sea, and although less pronounced, even in the harbour. This movement induces a swing in the lifted load, which creates a side load onto the structure of the crane. Effer designs and builds its marine cranes with numerous measures to withstand these harsh marine/offshore conditions.
