ALATAS’ SOLUTION

The technicians performed all detection and observation to identify problems and then offered recommendations to correct them based on their findings.

JOB SCOPE

Following their vessel attendance, Alatas Turkey technicians diligently carried out comprehensive inspections on four cranes, addressing specific issues for each one.

Starting with Crane no 1, they identified rust and corrosion on the hoisting hydraulic motor and luffing control block, necessitating the replacement of sealing equipment and hydraulic hoses. Additionally, they observed oil leaks in the hoisting control block and hydraulic motor connections, as well as rust on the hoisting flange connection, prompting further recommendations for replacement.

Moving on to Crane no 2, the technicians noted oil leaks in the oil tank outlet pipes connection and brake spring cylinder, leading to the recommendation for sealing equipment replacement. Rust on the hoisting control block called for additional replacement of sealing equipment and hydraulic hoses. They also found a broken in-cab ventilator, urging the need for a new one.

When inspecting Crane no 3, the technicians discovered non-functional hoisting and slewing brakes, warranting immediate replacement. External cabin damage required repairs and repainting.

Similarly, for Crane no 4, rust and corrosion were detected on the cabin outside bolts, as well as on the hoisting control block and hydraulic hoses, prompting recommendations for their replacement.

Upon completing individual crane inspections, the technicians performed a final comprehensive inspection. They identified rust and corrosion on various crane parts, recommending rasping and painting. The slewing outside balcony needed replacement due to rust. Cleaning and greasing of all wires were advised to address rust accumulation. Misaligned limit settings were corrected for improved safety. An improper safety latch on the hook block necessitated replacement. Issues with the hook block movements required repair or replacement. Finally, the technicians recommended monitoring and topping up the oil level as needed due to a decrease in the oil tank.

With Alatas Turkey technicians’ thorough assessments and recommendations, the cranes’ performance and safety have been optimized, ensuring smooth operations and enhanced longevity.
