Marine ports often involve critical timing when loading and unloading. Usually, the crane operator has no direct line-of-sight with the load. The HoistCam eliminates these blind spots, increases safety, and significantly improves productivity. The HoistCam from Netarus can also be used for loading and unloading cargo from inside of the hull of vessels. A case study found almost 60% increase in productivity from using the HoistCam for loading and unloading in these conditions. Check out the pictures and video below:
Below is a video case study of HoistCam unloading cargo from the hull of the vessel.
Description: The following case study is an example of how the HoistCam camera system for cranes can be used virtually anywhere in the shipyard. The HoistCam’s rugged housing and wireless transmission capabilities allows it to be placed anywhere. This video provides an example case study with pictures of how the rigger and crane operator use the HoistCam to assist them with a blind lift of cold rolled steel from inside the hull of a cargo ship. The results of using the HoistCam increased the safety rating above 90% and the efficiency of the unloading was reduced from 9 hours to 4 hours. This is a 55%+ increase in productivity and efficiency.* This increase in efficiency was due to the lift no longer being a blind lift from inside the hull of the cargo ship.
