Towing a barge with two 61m high container cranes from Antwerp to Las Palmas can provide several challenges. Our long term customer Sarens decided they would not take any risks and equipped both cranes with a Siri MRU for continuous monitoring during the tow. On the bridge of the Griek Diablos Pride a PC has been installed providing the captain and his crew with our decision support software, with set alarms when reaching critical limits.
Where often motion monitoring is only used for projects when it is part of the provided scope, Sarens decided to take it upon themselves to supply their client with the extra certainty and information that monitoring brings.
