SATOGrab: high performance system to recover blocks of different tonnage

Through two consecutive projects, jointly funded by the CDTI, SATO designed and developed a new device to recover breakwater blocks on port seal walls, that allows these large maritime structures to be moved for the first time.

The system, that has an international patent, allows optimum sizing for different weight ranges for the blocks to be extracted. The “Patents” section of this website provides more details and documentation on this element.

In 2011, SATOGrab received the silver medal at the 39th International Patent Fair in Geneva.
