Dynamic tests were carried out on two different types of pedestal crane in use in the North Sea. Boom stresses, hook loads and pedestral moments are tabulated for lifting a 5 ton test weight from a supply boat in rough weather. The significance of the recorded values is discussed and compared with results from a standardized 5 ton drop test at different operating radii.
