First of all, you need to provide the (SWL) safe working load of the marine and offshore crane, SWL means the capacity of the load and the radius relative to the crane, for example, a set of 5T10M crane, then 5T10M is its SWL, meaning the working radius is 10 meters and can lift 5T. Of course, taking into account the self-weight of the hook, the material structure of the boom and safety factors, we generally do not suggest to lift the weight of 5T, which is one of the necessary parameters you need to provide to purchase a crane.

The environment for working at sea will be more complicated. Therefore, It would be better to provide Beaufort level, sea state and wave factor of the sea area where the crane is used. According to the specific conditions of working environments, the manufacturer can determine the appropriate Design.


In addition, the height of the marine crane from the water, the power unit system, the crane self-weight requirements and the temperature of the application environment, all the above parameters are important. The more information you provide, the better the supplier will be able to meet your expectations. Then, provide you with a suitable design and precise quote. After order confirmed, the manufacturer can also complete the customization of products according to the specific situation.
