Enabling simops & enhancing material handling

The GustoMSC SmartCrane offers unique features that directly address the call for cost reduction from operators, while providing drilling contractors with a means to distinguish themselves. Two elements were high on the agenda when developing this piece of equipment: facilitating simultaneous operations (SIMOPS) independently of any operation in progress on the drill - oor and easing material handling underneath the cantilever or between the work platform and drill rig.


Operational features

The GustoMSC SmartCrane offers the following characteristics:

  • Facilitating SIMOPS
  • Enhancing efficiency due to easing material handling by having access to the work area 
  • Increased safety by high level of control and minimal handshakes
  • Cost effective, easy mountable/dismountable retrofit possibility


The crane operator is in the optimal position to oversee and control the operation as he uses a handheld device to control the crane. Blind lifts are avoided. In addition, the operation can be programmed for anti-collision in the crane operating system to ensure that the load and crane boom do not collide with obstacles such as the drilling riser, topside modules or the aft of the rig

Easy maintenance

Low maintenance due to the electrical variable speed driven SmartCrane
