The newly designed Rope Actuated Knuckle Boom Crane combines the best of two crane types; the Knuckle Boom and Boom Hoist crane, and offers unique features for optimal operation on subsea installations.
This Rope Actuated Knuckle Boom crane is a completely new type crane design and unique in its kind. The crane combines the benefits of a light construction of a rope suspended crane design with the superior load control characteristics of a Knuckle Boom crane by minimizing pendulum swing.
All crane motions are actuated by winch and rope. This way the internal forces of the crane are balanced, and the boom and knuckle structures are subjected to much lower bending moments as compared to the cylinder actuated Knuckle Boom cranes. As a result, KenzFigee’s design experts were able to keep the crane structure relatively light as compared to conventional Knuckle Boom cranes. The Rope Actuated Knuckle Boom crane features impressive capacity-over-weight ratios, comparable to those of Rope Luffing boom hoist cranes.
