Did Somebody Say Shock Test?

Last month we shared a post where the highlights included Hawboldt were in the process of delivering a large crane order for the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) Halifax Class Frigates. The cranes - which weigh approximately 9,000 kg (20,000 lbs) - successfully passed both MIL-spec floating barge Heavy-Shock Testing, and Lloyd’s Register Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) to date. The shock tests assured crane operation even after significant damage to the ship. This is determined through performing a shock test on the first crane in accordance with Test Criteria for Shock Resistant Equipment in Naval Ships standards.

    Hawboldt Fast Rescue (FR) Cranes are designed for launch of manned RHIB’s, emergency response and cargo handling in severe conditions. The FR Cranes include a constant tension (CT) winch that is SOLAS and LSA approved to provide reliable launch and recovery in temperatures as low as -40°C and sea states up to Sea State 6.

    With a 25+ year service life, our FR Cranes are built for the toughest challenges. Hawboldt’s FR Cranes are available with a number of options, including but not limited to: integrated hydraulic power unit, remote controls, load moment indication (LMI), shock requirements, constant tension winch. Our sales staff would be happy to discuss your application and find the perfect solution.
