Level Luffing Floating Dock Crane by ISKAR

ISKAR has supplied a vast number of floating dock cranes around its region. This Expertise in slewing jib cranes allows us to supply cost-effective, turnkey machinery with proven mechanical systems combined with the latest automation technology.

Floating dock cranes work on floating dock walls with a narrow rail span down to 2,5 meters. In order to overcome the worst heel and trim angles of the dock, a very fine design, and stability calculation is required for this type of cranes.


Cranes of YHV series are suitable for floating dock applications. Handling of hook loads for general ship repair and maintenance works are common operation modes. Typical of the YHV type crane design is the narrow rail span length and the feature to luff the jib down to rail level during towing of the dock on open seas. Floating dock cranes are the main power of ship repair yards and therefore shall be carefully engineered to achieve its duties.
