cargo loading

New Crane Device ‘YawSTOP’ to Cut Loading Time of Shipping Cargo

While dynamic positioning systems automatically maintains a vessel’s position despite wind and currents, and heave compensated cranes adjust for wave and roll, rotation control of suspended cargo is frequently handled by vessel or harbour crew with taglines attached to the corners of the load. This is a highly inefficient method to load and unload goods and equipment, and also represents a significant HSE-risk.
