Alatas Turkey technicians were on the vessel to inspect the Crane.

ALATAS’ SOLUTION

The technicians responded to the ship and inspected the Crane. First, technicians carried out all of the inspections and testing. Then they listed all the errors and suggested fixes.

 JOB SCOPE


The technicians from Alatas Turkey were dispatched to Spain to address the vessel’s needs, initiating their inspection of the crane.

They identified issues with the safety latch of Crane No. 1 and 2’s hook blocks, noting that it was non-functional. Furthermore, the safety latch on Crane No. 3 and 4’s hook blocks was found to be in poor condition, warranting replacement as recommended.

An observation was made regarding the absence of the shackle safety pin, necessitating its provision.

Corrosion was noted on the hook block sheaves, leading to a recommendation for maintenance. Additionally, rust and corrosion were found on the jib tip sheave guards, prompting a repair recommendation.

In the cases of Cranes 1 and 2, corrosion was detected on the jib, while corrosion initiation was observed in Cranes 3 and 4. To address this, the technicians advised a thorough cleaning and repainting.

Insufficient lubrication in the slewing gear was identified, requiring regreasing for resolution.

A leak in the hoisting and luffing hydro-motor gearbox connection point, along with an oil leak from the gearbox gravity lubrication connection on the slewing hydro-motor, was observed. Consequently, maintenance of these points was suggested.

The presence of corrosion and minor injuries on the slip ring was reported, calling for cleaning and polishing.

Recommendations were provided to replace malfunctioning warning, operational, and cabin lights. Additionally, the main panel cover stopper, rope trace on Crane No. 1’s hoisting and luffing sheaves, as well as the non-functioning emergency escape gate, tower gate locker, and Crane No. 2 feed pump hour meter, were all highlighted for maintenance.

The technicians noted the onset of corrosion on the tower and jib tip sheaves, advising their cleaning and repainting.

A replacement was proposed for the damaged oil cooler ventilation cover and operating seats. Similarly, the non-operational wiper on Crane No. 2 and the absent grease lubrication line on Crane No. 3’s jib required attention.

The lower limit of hoisting for Cranes 1 and 4 was reported as non-functional. While the limit set for No. 1 was rectified, No. 4’s limit required adjustment along with encoder and switch box calibration, as advised by the Alatas Turkey technicians.

Addressing the issue of the non-operational Crane No. 2 feed pump hour meter, it was recommended for repair. Finally, the technicians reported that a switch replacement was necessary for Crane No. 4 due to a luffing pressure switch failure alarm.
