DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION OF THE FIRST 2000 TON OFFSHORE CRANE SHIP

As the production of the North Sea oil and gas is moving out into deeper water and more adverse areas, the structures that have to be erected are increasing rapidly in dimensions and weight. Consequently the size of the employed floating cranes has to go up. The paper describes the typical design of the first 2000-ton crane that was built to handle heavy loads in unfavorable working conditions without concessions to safety.
