Accident Repairs on Deck Crane Rope Sheave Assembly
The vessel is equipped with Tsuji deck cranes type HSDHS 3528, with SWL of 35t. x 28m. Whilst loading coal with motor grabs, the luffing winch experienced a catastrophic failure, causing the boom to free fall. Besides sever damage to the crane jib, grab and ship's structure, also the rope sheave assembly at the top of the crane column got damaged, bent and distorted.
One of ALATAS tasks was to design, fabricate and install a new rope shave assembly, c/w with brackets, consoles and new rope sheaves.
The design was class approved and the entire repairs were carried out under class supervision.
