Offshore cranes are commonly used in cargo handling, offshore installation and replenishment at sea. However, because of the wave motion of the ship and the flexibility of the rope, the sway of payload is unavoidable and may put relevant operations in danger. A sling tray mechanical anti-sway system is proposed in this paper aiming to reduce the payload sway of some buoy tender. An anti-sway test bed is designed, analyzed and built to testify the proposed anti-sway system and lay the foundation of future practical application.
Key words: design / test bed / anti-sway / offshore crane
