First ATEX-certified Marco deck crane

Marco, the world's leading builder and seller of fishing and deck equipment, today announced the delivery of its first ATEX-certified Marco deck crane. This certificate attests that the crane can operate in explosive atmospheres. The crane is to be installed on the supply vessel Green Cádiz, currently nearing completion at Astilleros Murueta for Bilbao-based shipowner Green Bay Sur, to work as a service vessel in the port of Algeciras.

The Green Cádiz is built for use as a service vessel to collect slops from the cleaning of tanks and pollutant waste produced by vessels and offloads them at on-shore processing plants for recycling.

The Marco electro-hydraulic deck crane has a reach of 16 metres and a load capacity of 3.2 tonnes. It is to be used to position and secure the hoses that collect slops, and for ancillary loading and unloading work on the vessel. It will be serving oil tankers among other vessels and will therefore have to operate with inflammable or explosive waste, so ATEX Zone 1 certification was essential.

To facilitate operations, the crane can rotate continuously through 360º in either direction, and can be controlled remotely or at the control platform. This crane is also certified by Bureau Veritas.

Marco technology has been contributing to the development of fishing for over 50 years and the brand is the acknowledged world leader, with equipment installed on over 450 vessels worldwide, always providing customers with the utmost assurances of quality and reliability.
