Aquaculture fish breeding company Gargano Pesca, based in Manfredonia, Italy, is using a Linden Comansa tower crane to help unload 10 tonne food containers from ships to its floating cages.
In total, there are 40 floating cages, all used for breeding species that include seabass, gilthead sea bream and corvine.
The 12 tonne capacity Linden Comansa 16LC185 flat top tower crane is also being used for the loading and unloading of net equipment and the clamping system. It has been erected at the port, about 5 metres above sea level, on a 4.5 m wide base. It has been configured with an under hook height of 20.2 m and a 45 m jib. The crane is operated by radio remote control.
