The vessel is over 10 years old and is undergoing its 2nd special survey during drydocking in Singapore. The ship is equipped with 4 units of Liebherr cylinder luffing deck cranes type CBW with a lifting capacity of 45 tons. The Owners had decided to fully refurbish the container deck cranes on board, including removing and overhauling crane components such as hydraulic hoisting motors and luffing cylinders. An operator cabin changeout was planned as well.


ALATAS Singapore is run by former Liebherr Service Managers and we employ senior Liebherr Deck Crane engineers. Coupled with our vast experience in marine crane repairs, this makes Alatas a competent service provider for Liebherr Ship and Offshore cranes. Alatas has the competence and proven track record to work on Liebherr cranes.
