From the cold and stormy North Sea to the burning heat of the Middle East, our rugged units are designed to operate in the harshest environments.
From small in-air lifts of a few ton up to the largest subsea manifolds of more than 1000 ton, Cranemaster has the right units to remove slack slings, shock loads or unwanted motion. We provide lift analysis and have expertise and equipment for every phase of the lifting operation.

A Cranemaster® unit (SWL 100 ton, 1000 mm stroke) was used by an offshore rig on British sector to increase their lifting capacities.
A Cranemaster® unit (SWL 50 ton) was used to absorb the forces through the splash zone, avoid resonance and reduce landing speed.
Cranemaster has built up a strong track record in the offshore renewables market. Installation of monopiles, jacket foundations, templates, transition pieces and wave energy devices are some of the projects we have been involved in.
Based on requests from key players in the industry, Cranemaster has developed special shock absorbers that will reduce snap loads during pile runs (pile drops) to acceptable levels. As a result, risk for personnel is significantly reduced and expensive interruptions or damage to equipment can be avoided.

When the MV Rena grounded on Otaiti (Astrolabe Reef) in the Bay of Plenty, it resulted in one of New Zealand's most significant maritime environmental disasters. The removal process was considered a difficult and risky process.
Cranemaster will be a positive contribution to your decommissioning activities in reducing cost and increasing weather window for lifting operations.
When removing an object from a platform or from subsea using a crane vessel, the Cranemaster® unit will compensate for heave motions and remove potential snap loads and slack slings. For subsea operations, motion may also be reduced significantly, depending on the shape of the object. During the cutting operation, the Cranemaster® unit may also be used to provide a near constant tension in the crane wire independent of the vessel movement.

A Cranemaster® unit (SWL 600 ton, 3000 mm stroke) was used to protect the crane and the structure from shock loads during the removal process of a large offshore bridge structure in the North Sea.
