AN ELECTRICAL CONTROL SYSTEM FOR HORIZONTAL LOAD TRANSFER ON HEAVY- LIFT SEAGOING FLOATING CRANES

Heavy-lift seagoing cranes have upperstructures that transfer a load horizontally relative to the crane deck by changing boom reach. Experience in operating such cranes has revealed serious flaws in the design of upperstructures utilizing the articulated boom that is generally accepted in world practice. After enumerating these flaws, the author describes the design of a fundamentally new heavy-lift floating crane in the Bogatyr' series. The design eliminated any kind of mechanical system for horizontal load transfer. It instead incorporated a single-piece boom and an electrical system to level out the load's path when the boom reach was changed.
