Measutronics Installs First Trimble Marine Crane Guidance System

Featuring one of Trimble's newest product lines in marine construction, Measutronics has installed the first Trimble Marine Crane Guidance System on a Liebherr 895 clamshell crane. The system utilizes angle sensors to measure machine pitch and roll as well as boom inclination. Rotational encoders track cable payout and the open/close status of the bucket. Trimble GNSS receivers, antennas, and telemetry are used for RTK positioning and orientation of the machine.

This data is fed into Trimble Marine Construction (TMC) software on a panel PC in the cab to give a comprehensive and clear display of a 3D surface model for the operator to view real-time tracking of the bucket that updates the surface as work progresses. This system is combined with real-time updates to the model from a WIFI-connected survey vessel using a high resolution multibeam SONAR.

As a Trimble Advanced Marine Partner, Measutronics has the experience and knowledge to interface these systems together to provide a highly accurate and efficient solution for contractors to meet the tightest tolerances for their dredging, material placement, or demolition specification.
