  • OT: Offshore crane failure

    https://pr0gramm.com/top/3876903

    holy crap, I think there is people in the lifting basket.

    Pretty heavy duty crane, If I'm not mistaken this is Deme group ship "Orion" with 5000 ton crane. 3000 tons at 50 meters and maximum 160m reach so this thing was a monster.

              Even if they repair what's broken now, can they trust any of the rest of it?

                I bet a lot of that crane ends up in Harbor Freight merchandise.

                  Looks like they ran it to far to the wrong side and over stressed it.
                  The shortest distance between two points is a circle of infinite diameter.

                    That is strange. It fell over backwards. I suspect they raised the boom until the center of gravity was behind the pivot pin and it simply toppled backwards. The lower section probably hit stops and that jerk snapped the boom in the middle.

                      It'll buff out.

                        The ship was built in China, but I believe the crane was built in Rostock.

                          Unless I'm misreading that article, it was the ship that was built in China, not the crane. The crane was built in Germany. The ship was in Germany having the German-built crane installed.

                            Sounds as if there will be some construction delay on a wind farm..... I'd estimate the lead time on that at 2-3 years, starting with it already designed. And now, the entire design is in question.

                            The builders are one of the top crane companies, if not THE top company. If they cannot get it right, well........ Since as I understand it, the crane was still not released for use, but was being checked out. Is that correct?
