New Zealand Drops Charges against Greenpeace after Amazon Warrior Action(marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)

- May 03, 2018-

greenpeace-696x500.pngThe charges were laid against the organisation after activists, including Executive Director Russel Norman and climate activist Sara Howell, swam in front of the Amazon Warrior, 60 nautical miles off the Wairarapa coast, stopping it from seismic blasting for the day.

The pair and Greenpeace were subsequently charged for the first time in New Zealand history under a controversial amendment to the Crown Minerals Act made by Simon Bridges in 2013 when he was Minister of Energy, known as the Anadarko Amendment, which outlaws peaceful protest against oil ships at sea.

Norman and Howell will still face charges for their part in the action. Greenpeace said that they will plead guilty and seek a discharge without conviction on the basis that their conduct was justified and necessary to bring about required change to government policy.

The news follows the government’s announcement earlier this month of an end to all new offshore oil and gas exploration.

In early 2018, Greenpeace activists boarded the support vessel Mermaid Searcher in protest of oil and gas exploration when it arrived in New Zealand to collect resupplies for the Schlumberger-owned 125-metre long ship Amazon Warrior.

The activists appeared in court and were charged with unlawfully getting into a motor vehicle and with willful trespass, New Zealand media earlier reported.

Running smoothly.

Rates of speed can be changed. 

360 degrees rotary.

Both electro hydraulic and manual to control. 

Operate conveniently. 

Safety and reliability. 

Fold boom cranes have the ability to get into and service projects where regular mobile cranes don’t have the room necessary for a safe set up. This makes the folding boom crane ideal for several applications.

A Folding boom crane has two booms (main boom and an outer boom), which are attached by knuckle that allows the entire boom structure to move in and out, just in the same way our knuckles move the sections of our fingers. This movement allows a knuckle boom crane to fold into a very small size when transporting materials or squeezing into a small construction site. The mobility of a folding crane also allows an operator to clear the payload off their own deck. 

Typical Applications: Service cranes, Provision and cargo handling cranes, Fishing and fish farming cranes
