Reliable grip on deck

The „Triplex multi deck handler MDH“ is comparable with a portal system positioning the crane mounted on top along the x and Y axis on deck of working vessels. Its large lift and tow capacity makes the multi deck handler the crew’s perfect tool for handling large anchors, buoys and chains on deck.

To prevent the up to 20 tons heavy equipment from moving with strong swell, hydraulic brakes hold with clamping torques up to 203 kN and 542 kN firmly on the track. The brakes fix the crane, thus have to be strong, sturdy and reliable.

For Triplex KTR adapted type KTR-STOP YAW for special maritime applications: The high demand on corrosion protection resulted in the use of chemically nickel-plated brake components. In a close cooperation with Triplex the housing was provided with a special coating structure with offshore classification C5 M. Furthermore the yaw brake was adapted with special metallic-ceramic powder metal pads.

The Classic Round Voyage

MS Richard With is one of 16 ships of the Norwegian shipping company Hurtigruten offering their guests a relaxing travel experience along the west coast of Norway. 590 passengers can book a place on MS Richard With. The ship built in a classic nautical style by the shipyard Volkswerft Stralsund has a length of 120 metres and is named in honour of the founder of Hurtigruten.  

The ship has a great deal to offer for the comfortable trip along a breathtaking scenery. „Enjoy the unforgettable views of the singular coastal landscape a major part of which still appears like in those days when the first Hurtigruten ships drove along here more than one decade ago“, the Norwegian shipping company located in Tromsø advertises.

This statement is reflected by the technical equipment of MS Richard With. As an example, bow thrusters facilitate manoeuvring and make landing and casting off smoother. The „steering assistance“ is supplied by BRUNVOLL located in Molde. The Norwegians specialized in marine drive and automation systems as well as bow thrusters including tunnel thrusters.  

Torsionally  flexible jaw couplings of the ROTEX series for torques up to 35,000 Nm as well as flexible pin & bush couplings of the series REVOLEX KX-D for torques up to 98,000 Nm are used­ as a connection element between motor and tunnel thruster. The elastomer damping elements in the couplings assume a vital feature for achieving a surplus in travel comfort. They uncouple the vibrations of the tunnel thrusters from the rest of the ship which you can feel and hear or not, as the case may be.
