Abstract
The CONREP Crane telescopes out from a side access on the military guide ship and reaches out and rests on the flight deck of the approach ship. This allows the cargo weight to be shared between the two vessels. This also virtually eliminates the relative height changes of the crane over the decks, which eases the landing of cargo onto the decks.BENEFITS: The CONREP Crane system will transfer heavier loads at higher throughput rates more safely with less manpower than the existing UNREP STREAM system. Commercially, waterborne transportation companies seeking to expand their routes, would benefit from having ships CONREP Cranes incorporated to provide and acquire TEU cargo at ports of call that were previously not an option because of their limited or non-existent port craning capabilities.
