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.

Oil & Gas

From small in-air lifts of a few ton to subsea landing of the largest manifolds of more than 1000 ton, we have the right units to remove slack slings, shock loads and unwanted motion. We know dynamics challenges in all lifting phases and also how to reduce them!

Renewables offshore energy offshorewind industry heavy lifting passive heave compensator cranemaster


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.

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.
