            Various industries are involved in the movement of very large and heavy equipment at sea, such as platforms and cable lines. A special vessel with equipment designed for this purpose is required for such equipment. These vessels generally are large and one of a kind, which means that each one is unique and requires a special approach. This equally applies to the equipment needed for the onboard cranes.

            A unique sector
            Projects that fall within the scope of the offshore sector generally stand out in terms of their unique character. Vessels that are required to carry out such projects must be designed for this purpose and their equipment consequently generally is flexible in nature. Transfer equipment must be able to make unusual twists and turns as well as move hundreds of tonnes. This not only requires a higher class crane from a technical perspective, the operator must be able to carry out the required tasks in all safety and as efficiently as possible.
