Marine cranes are lifting equipment specifically designed for use in harsh marine environments, such as ships, offshore platforms, and piers. They are usually located on the shoreline or mounted on a boat, which can effectively ease your heavy lifting work.
Marine cranes are essential for ship-to-shore cargo handling, supply at sea, personnel transportation, moving heavy equipment, dropping or recycling materials in the ocean, and participating in offshore construction and maintenance work.
To meet the challenges of the marine environment, marine cranes must be specially designed to withstand corrosive seawater, strong winds, and other harsh conditions. Moreover, they must comply with specific safety regulations and classification society approvals for use in marine environments.
Usually, you can quickly classify them according to the different boom of marine cranes, the following are the various kinds of marine cranes suitable for offshore and marine applications:
Gantry Marine Cranes – The biggest type of crane. These cranes are several stories tall. It is utilized in loading/offloading shipping operations. Gantry cranes can effectively transfer cargo on and off ships dockside. It has a design which is the operator’s cabin is on the top end of the crane. It is suspended from the trolley.
Telescopic boom crane – It can be hydraulic extended. This crane retracted without a knuckle function.
Overhead Jib Cranes – It uses horizontal pieces such as a jib or boom. This supports a moveable hoist. A jib or boom is permanently fixed to a wall or a floor pillar. Jib cranes are used in offshore drilling industries, lifting materials to different floors, construction sites on the tops of buildings, etc.
Stiff boom crane – Specifically made for general cargo handling. It can be utilized on offshore units and ships.
Knuckle boom crane – Used on fixed platforms. It is found on vessels with a large deck area. This has less joints thus easy to maintain.
Foldable telescopic boom crane – It needs minimum deck space. This crane ensures constant torque moment. It reduces the pendulum effect’ of the load.
Specialty crane – Refers to a special type of crane that is used to perform a specific work. For example, military applications, technical support, lifting and rescue, road clearance, etc.

The lead time for our marine cranes varies depending on customer requirements and certification needs.
For products with only the factory certificate, the delivery time can be as short as 1-3 months.
However, if customers require CCS or ABS product certification, the delivery time may be extended by 1-2 months. This is because during the production process, surveyors from the classification societies will visit the OUCO factory multiple times to inspect accessories, welding conditions, crane load capacity, and other factors.
Being a crane designed for marine applications, it is particularly vulnerable to various factors originating from the natural environment and potential risks associated with human factors. These factors include:
- Inclement weather conditions, including strong winds and rough seas.
- Influences from the vessel’s stability and motion.
- Potential obstructions or interactions with adjacent structures or other vessels.
- Suction effects from the seabed.
- Dynamic loading that the crane may experience during operations.
- Risks arising from incorrect manipulations or operator errors.
- Effects of light, noise, and spray that can impact crane performance.
So, how can we prevent tipping and accidents during marine crane operations?
In fact, OUCO has conducted simulated sea state tests on the cranes, ensuring their ability to withstand designated marine conditions under normal usage. However, you also need to note that:
- Please follow the load chart we provide.
- Make sure the pedestal is stable and mounted horizontally on the deck.
- Do not exceed the safe working load when lifting.
- Vertical lifting operation, do not lift during wire rope inclination.
- Operation within the specified sea state.
- Stop lifting operation in wind force of six.
- The operating sea area is within the range of the heel and trim specified.
Marine Crane Lifting Moment
The lifting capacity of marine crane and the corresponding working radius is called the lifting moment, which is a comprehensive indicator to measure the operating mechanism of the crane.
In the industry, the maximum lifting moment is an important feature to classify cranes. It represents the lifting capacity of the crane, and we can calculate it with a simple formula:
Lifting weight load * Corresponding working range (distance from center line of rotation)
Unit: N m (Newton-metre)
Marine Crane Torque Limiter
The device of moment limiting prevents overloading of the crane structure, as it prevents any movement that increases the torque value to the maximum established value.
When in use, the buzzer on the torque limiter host will issue an alarm, and the lifting and luffing actions will automatically stop, which is to prevent the operator from rough handling or improper operation.
In addition, the torque display can show the torque during the lifting operation in real-time, indicating mechanical failures and structural problems.
If you need, OUCO can install a moment limiter for your crane, which can display the current load, working radius, working status and torque figures, etc. Moreover, we will debug to avoid torque limiter is inaccurate.
Whether it is a marine crane, a port crane, or a pedestal crane, it mainly includes the following performance parameters, such as lifting weight, lifting moment, working radius, lifting height, working speed, self-weight and other indicators.
These parameters indicate the working performance, technical indicators and economic indicators of marine cranes. The above are also the technical basis of crane design and the main basis for users to choose cranes.
The lifting height of a marine crane means the hook travel. We can understand it as the vertical distance from the lifting device (hook, grab, spreader) of the crane to the deck or the ground.
We usually design it as 20m, can also customize according to the client’s requirements.
Descending depth: the vertical distance between the lowest working position of the lifting device and the horizontal support surface of the crane. Marine cranes are usually designed for longer drop distances, so they can lift objects below deck or on shore.
Lifting range: the vertical distance between the highest and lowest working positions of the lifting device, which needs to be designed according to the actual situation of your vessel.
The working radius means the distance from the crane rotation center axis to the center of the hook, usually measured in the lifting weight state, due to the lifting weight of structural parts and other deformation may occur.
Therefore, when the general tonnage product is hoisted, the amplitude is about 0.5 to 2 meters larger than that when it is empty. For details, please refer to the Crane Load Chart provided by the manufacturer.
Working speed is a measure of the actuator operating speed, mainly include lifting, luffing, slewing and telescopic speed.
Lifting speed: Lifting speed of the crane hook, divided into single rope speed, empty hook speed and full load speed.
Full load speed: all expressed in units of m/min.
Slewing speed: expressed in units of r/min.
Luffing speed: means the time for lifting boom to luffing from horizontal state to minimum working radius of lifting boom, unit of seconds.
The self-weight of the crane is the entire weight of the crane itself, including all of its structural components, mechanisms, and attachments.
For a crane of the same performance, the lighter weight means that the crane design is reasonable and manufacturing is reliable.
The crane lifting weight value is called the lifting capacity, crane lifting weight parameters are usually expressed in terms of SWL (Safe Working Load).
SWL is determined by the load chart. Send us your requirements, we will design a load chart of marine crane for you.
