As subsea structures get larger and more complex, landing speed of subsea structures becomes an increasingly important topic. Cranemaster has been used extensively to reduce motion for subsea lifting operations. Boom tip movements are picked up by the stroke of the Cranemaster unit and thereby limiting the load movements.
- Limited operational weather window to reach required vertical landing speed.
- Structures with landing speed limitations. Exceeding these might cause overstress within the structures.
- Landing of structures with tight angular tolerance.
- Rapid heeling of vessel during landing of heavy loads.
- Reduction of landing speed.
- Possibility to maintain tension in wire during landing phase.
- Reduction of peak loads in case of re-lifting.
- Prevention of rapid heeling of vessel during landing of heavy loads.

Subsea Landing with and without Cranemaster
Two 700T Cranemaster units are used in parallel. Actual observed forces and movements corresponded well to the Orcaflex simulation.
Maximum landing speed = -0,7 m/s
Maximum crane tension = 2000 ton
Maximum landing speed = -0,1 m/s
Maximum crane tension = 840 ton
No slack observed in the rigging
