Merford’s PortCab and MasterCab for Sennebogen: a success story for years
It is almost impossible to overlook Sennebogen’s cranes. Thanks to their distinctive green colour, you know right away that you are dealing with a Sennebogen crane. Their cabins also stand out, partly because of the contrasting color and contemporary layout. Some of Sennebogen’s cranes are fitted with a cabin from Merford, depending on the crane types and customer’s wishes. This has been the standard since the late nineties, to the satisfaction of Sennebogen and the end customers.
Unique control unit for Next Generation Gangway of Barge Master and Bosch Rexroth
Barge Master is a supplier of motion compensation systems for the offshore industry. The Next Generation Gangway is the company's latest innovation. The system transfers people from a ship to, for example, offshore wind turbines or platforms. The machine compensates wave motion, and at the same time stabilizes the gangway for people walking over it. The gangway is also applicable as a crane for light loads. The unique open control unit of the gangway was designed and produced by Merford Cabins, in extensive consultation with Barge Master and Bosch Rexroth.
