Different terms are used: (a) maximum capacity; (b) free digging capacity; and (c) average capacity. Maximum capacity This is the maximum capacity that can be reached. It depends upon the shortest cycle time, the maximum load of the grab, the skill of the operator, and the shape of the hatch of the ship which is to be unloaded. Operator skill and hatch configuration, are factors which equally affect the free digging and average capacity. In fact a crane driver can maintain this capacity for only a short period of time.
The capacity of a container quay crane will be greatest when a skilled crane driver is being used. However, people do tire but automation never becomes fatigued in the same way. Therein lies the difference! In the USA the following productivity measures have been developed by, among others, the National Ports and Waterways Institute.

For faster cranes: D͞dG30. For fast unloaders: D͞dG36. Where DGwire rope sheave diameter or drum diameter, centre to centre of wire rope, and dGwire rope diameter. 4 The choice of wire ropes Without going into too much detail, it can be stated that the choice is mainly between ordinary (regular) or cross lay wire ropes and Lang’s 42 Cranes – Design, Practice, and Maintenance lay wire ropes. Both types should preferably be used with a steel core. They should be galvanized and always fully lubricated or greased.
