Lifting Support product group is a set of decision support modules that can assist crane operators to perform lifting operations in a safer and more efficient way.

  • Motion Reporter: Measures the relative heave-movement on the vessel deck to reduce waiting for weather and helps avoid lifting in unsafe conditions.
  • Boom Tip Indicator: Indicates on the screen in the crane cabin exactly where on the vessel deck the cargo will land or be lifted from, where the hook will hit the cargo and helps crane operator avoiding lifting off with a pendulum movement.
  • Soft Lifting Assistant: Helps crane operator perform soft landing and lift-off by indicating the ideal timing based on real-time velocities at the exact lift-off/landing area.
  • People Detector: Detects people in the lifting area and alerts the crane operator and/or others of potentially dangerous situations.
