October 2013. The weight measurement of a container crane is of paramount importance to many parties. Both the crane builder as well as the operator benefit from the insight provided from an accurate weight measurement. This insight varies from the actual load on the quay rails or e.g. the stability under storm conditions to even the fatigue load in normal operation. From the weight measurement, also the location of the Center of Gravity in the X-Y plane is calculated.
In order to serve the involved parties, the crane weight of the newly delivered Ship to Shore container cranes was measured at the ICTSI terminal in Manzanillo, Mexico. Flying in with a full set of weight measurement equipment from The Netherlands, Langeveld has measured the weight of the cranes in all operational conditions.
