English translation:overhead gantry crane with slings
Explanation:
Overhead gantry crane with slings

1 - http://www.pill.plym.ac.uk/MARSK2/Handle/Finn9.htm

The overhead gantry, as has been mentioned, is often employed in the stockholder situation, where there is consistent working and a regular throughput. Many developments have taken place over the last 10 or 20 years involving a degree of automation and the use of special stacker trucks
and racking storage systems.

Overhead gantry cranes vary in type. Some have an elevated driver's cabin where the operator is able to observe the loading and have full control of movement of the crane and of the lifting tackle. Sometimes the overhead gantry crane is controlled by an operator at ground level from where instructions are relayed which enable the overhead gantry to pick up products, such as coils or packaged steel or plates, and transfer them to vehicles or move them around in a storage area. The use of the overhead gantry minimizes labour requirements, but a heavy capital cost is needed to establish such a system.

The capacity of the overhead gantry crane is reduced by the weight of the tackle used to effect the lift. Tackle could be "C"-hooks, chains or slings for lifting a variety of iron and steel products.

Explanation:
Yes, in answer to Tayfun's point : cranes for docks adn not docks for cranes...

The French original does say "une darse pour portique" (a wet dock for overhead gantry crane), which is not that silly when you think about it. It means the sort of basin to which a gantry crane is suited.
