Manual life raft crane launched

Nov 26, 2015 by Guest Writer

The Dutch hydraulic equipment manufacturer Cramm Yachting Systems had introduced a newly designed deck-oriented life raft crane that is fully manual and gravity operated. Because it is not dependent on a stored power source, the crane can be placed anywhere on deck, giving designers and operators more flexibility in deck layout design.

Reducing the need for independent stored power also means lower costs of purchase, integration and ownership.

The CD9000M crane is designed to handle life rafts for 20 occupants (SWL1850kg) and is SOLAS/LSA approved by Lloyd’s Register. Each crane is built under Lloyd’s Register Survey and tested according to the latest IMO testing regime for Life Saving Appliances, according to a company press release.
