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!
