Special Cranes

TMS develops and supplies cranes for customer-specific requirements and purposes. The cutter manipulator and crane with integrated hose reel are the most recent examples. The cutter manipulator is designed to change the large cutter heads on dredging vessels as quick and safe as possible. During disassembly, a clamping mechanism holds the cutter head parallel to the drive shaft until it is disassembled. After that, the cutter head can be placed on an adjacent platform for maintenance or replacement.

For an other project, it was necessary to store the umbilical hose of a ROV unit under the crane. TMS developed and supplied a crane with hose reel and chain hoist so that it was easy to store everything as one compact unit.
