Offshore cranes

The main application of YawSTOP is loading and unloading cargo for offshore cranes. With YawSTOP you save time, money and reduce the risk when lifting cargo.

Loading and moving cargo within limited space of an offshore support vessel, rig or platform, is time consuming and involve a ground crew working together with the crane operator to line up the cargo into the designated area. The ground crew uses the tag-lines for positioning the cargo. This work is risky due to the required precision of positioning of heavy parts. Tight spaces and required stability of lifting operations add up to risk of operations.

The number of blind zones and limited possibilities to visually inspect operations, result in a reduced safety factor for personnel and cargo as well. Weather conditions are of great importance to ensure safety operations and limits the periods lifting is possible.

Benefits with YawSTOP:

  • No tag-lines remove the need for deck operators close to the cargo - reduces risk for injuries.
  • Fully automated lifting operations remotely controlled by one operator.
  • Increase efficiency of the process, by reducing the operational time for lifting and loading cargo and goods.
  • Operations less weather dependent, leading to improvements in logistic planning due to less delays caused by environmental conditions.
