Since 1975 Italy's Effer SpA has put considerable effort into the en- gineering and manufacturing of hydraulic cranes for marine appli- cations. Through its past experience,

Effer has gained a vast amount of knowledge concerning anti-corrosion treatment to crane components.

Effer marine cranes are specifically designed and assembled for use in a salt-water environment. All Effer cranes are designed and produced according to the standard DIN 15018.

The company's range of marine cranes falls into four categories: knuckleboom cranes—ranging in capacity from 2.5 to 140 metric tons, these units can be completely folded for efficient use of space; BL knuck- leboom cranes—ranging in capacity from 24 to 400 metric tons, these knuckleboom units have a first long boom; telescoping boom cranes— available in capacities from 44 to 200 metric tons; and fixed length boom cranes—offered in capacities from 44 to 400 metric tons.

Elevating Boats, Inc. (EBI) has recently manufactured a number of its newly designed 100 and 150 Se- ries marine cranes with capacities of 50 tons and 75 tons, respectively.

These cranes are offered in fixed, double-tapered box boom type and telescopic configuration that incor- porates EBI's unique rack and pinion telescopic mechanism, which re- quires no internal hydraulic cylinder.

To reduce the cost of inventory and maintenance, most of the parts in the gearboxes for the swing mech- anism of the crane are the same as the ones in the telescopic gearboxes and the load-line winch.

EBI has incorporated an all-hy- draulic safety system with an anti-two-blocking device for it 100 and 150 Series cranes. This system protects the crane from an overload due to hoisting, booming out and telescoping out.

EBI has recently manufactured a

TC150-54-100 model telescopic ma- rine crane, with a 75-ton capacity and 54-foot retracted and 100-foot extended boom length, for the U.S.

Maritime Administration. This crane was installed by Coastal Ma- rine Services, Port Arthur, Texas, aboard the MA7 Barbara Lois. The crane is currently in service for

MarAd Beaumont Reserve Fleet. Its function is general equipment trans- fer and anchor-handling operation of up to 40,000 pounds at 40-foot reach.
