Aquila Favco Cranes Ltd. of Australia has developed a specialized crane for waterfront work in small to medium sized ports. The crane is diesel hydraulic powered and has closed-circuit television. The crane is designed to seek out awkwardly placed cargo which cannot be easily reached because of the structure of a ship. It can also claim and extract a particular container which might have to wait its turn if lifted by conventional container cranes, the maker says. The crane has a 30-ton lift for containers and a 40-ton lift for slung cargo, and can be operated as a rail-mounted unit or from fixed positions.
