Deck Handling and Cranes

In rough seas or in environmental protection zones, modern tugboats must escort larger ships safely into port. In this industry, time is money in the truest sense of the word.

Solutions for Deck Handling and Cranes

Our solutions for deck handling and cranes have proven themselves in practice on the high seas and under the most difficult conditions.

Closed Hatches and Secured Cargo

This gives a competitive advantage to whoever can offer their services nearly “around the clock.” Highly automated winches and machines on deck provide the best possible protection when maneuvering at sea. The same holds true for loading and unloading using cranes and gangway systems on offshore wind farms or oil drilling platforms. A highlight here is the direct control of proportional valves, making expensive valve amplifiers and proprietary solutions a thing of the past. Parameterization moves into automation at the point where the tool chain is available anyway.

Our WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 sets new standards:

  • Integration into media-redundant or high-availability ETHERNET networks with SIL-compliant modules, or simply the standard WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750
  • Specialty modules for direct control of proportional valve modules and all further modules from the product range – the most compact solution for any application!

Zero Emissions, Doubly Safeguarded

Supported by the Arctic University of Norway in Narvik (UiT) and funded by the Norwegian government, the shipbuilders at Grovfjord Mekaniske Verksted (GMV) have developed an energy management system (EMS) for a zero-emission ship with an all-electric drive. This visionary project was realized with the help of WAGO, which contributed to the central automation.

Aquaculture Leaps into the Digital Age

The notion of the fisherman sailing off to the open seas is scarcely more than nostalgia. In the meantime, according to information from the wildlife and environmental protection organization, WWF, almost half of all fish consumed by humans comes from aquaculture, and the trend is increasing. Fish farmers do not rely on bait, but instead on digital data analysis in order to catch the fattest fish – and to keep their breeding stocks healthy and economically viable. WAGO technology is there to support them.

The Lake is Calm and Still

Embedded in a stunning, idyllic mountain setting, Lake Lucerne provides a traditional atmosphere with its fjord-like straights and winding inlets. Right in the middle of this beauty is a daily shipping route bearing tourists between Lucerne and other popular travel destinations, like Weggis and Bürgenstock. While it may sound less than idyllic, it actually boasts an intriguing eco-friendly twist. The MS Bürgenstock, the new motorized vessel belonging to the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company (SGV), sports a quiet and fuel-efficient hybrid drive. Aventics, a specialist of hybrid drive controls in ships headquartered in Laatzen, ensures optimum control between the electric motors and diesel engines. Several years ago, Aventics expanded their solutions by using the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750.
