Técnicas Hidráulicas has successfully implemented its first ATEX and Bureau Veritas certified deck crane

Tecnicas Hidraulicas, has successfully implemented its first deck crane with ATEX certification, which validates its operation in areas with explosive atmospheres. The crane will be installed on the "Green Cadiz" offshore supply ship that Murueta Shipyard is manufacturing for Green Bay ship owner.

The Green Cadiz Vessel will provide different services to other vessels, like collecting sludge from ship tanks as well as any contaminating waste generated by those vessels so they can be recycle at in land based processing plants at the Port of Algeciras. 

TH Marco electro-hydraulic crane has a maximum reach of 16 meters and a load-bearing capacity of up to 3.2 tons. It will be used to place and hold hoses used to collect the sludge, as well as secondary ship loading & unloading tasks. The crane´s flexibility allows to rotate 360º in both directions without interruption and it can be operated remotely or from a command platform.

Due Green Bay vessels will be providing working for oil tankers, among other types of vessels, it has been essential to obtain the ATEX Zone 1 certification for the crane since it will have to operate with inflammable or explosive wastes. The crane has also been certified by Bureau Veritas.

With over 450 vessel references worldwide, TH Marco technology has contributed for over 50 years to the fishing industry development.
