Barge Master Crane Trials

28 January 2013

Various tests were performed at the North Sea using a Liebherr LR1250 crawler crane on top of the Barge Master platform. The crane was placed onto the Barge Master in one single lift, sea fastened, and tested with a counterweight. Subsequently, the pontoon with the Barge Master was taken to the North Sea where tests were executed lifting various loads. The tests were performed in a variety of sea-states and mooring setups. With the Barge Master switched "on", the crane hook and load hung perfectly still with respect to an earth fixed reference frame.
