On the Move with Gross-Funk on All the Worlds´s Oceans

With the ʻPolarstern‘ in Antarctica

On the research vessel ‘Polarstern‘ of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, a large radio remote control unit controls the crane safely and reliably even under the most extreme environmental conditions, such as arctic temperatures and adverse wind and weather conditions. This is the shortest and best description of the advantages of radio remote control by Gross-Funk.

Radio systems from Gross-Funk are used in many maritime areas. The systems are at home on container ships, tankers, ferries, passenger ships and supply ships for offshore installations such as wind farms. They can also be used in a wide range of applications on yachts, ranging from small private yachts to large luxury yachts. Depending on the application, anchor winches, mooring winches, steering gear, ship drives, cranes, gangways and much more are controlled

Radio remote control for the ‘Meerkatze‘

The ‘Meerkatze‘, a ship of the coast guard with special tasks, was equipped by Gross-Funk with remote control technology. During the journey the dinghy can be launched by crane
