Ship-to-shore-crane

This ship-to-shore crane can not only lift the container and set it down again, the whole crane girder can be moved vertically. This significantly shortens the lifting and lowering times. The previous energy chain solution with freely dangling cables was extremely prone to problems, because the cables could tangle all the time in strong wind, and then had to be untangled again by staff in a complex process taking up to 30 working hours. With igus® energy chains, however, the cables are safely routed.
