OTC 2016: Barge Master provides motion compensated lifting

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Barge Master has won an OTC Spotlight Award for the BM-T40 motion compensated crane.

It enables safe lifting operations from a moving vessel to an offshore installation. It eliminates motions at the base of the crane allowing work to continue safely in higher sea-states, eliminating the need for platform cranes, and reducing costs.

The BM-T40 features a small footprint and is designed to compensate for sea induced motions of a knuckle boom crane with a lifting capacity of 15 metric tons at a 10 m (33 ft) radius or 5 metric tons at a 20 m (66 ft) radius.

The company also received the OTC Small Business Award, which recognizes innovative technologies being developed by companies with less than 300 employees.

Barge Master is exhibiting at booth #2327.
