Alatas technicians have completed the hoisting gearbox replacement in Kandla’s outer anchorage. The crane utilizes an electrical motor for the hoisting, luffing, and slewing operations, and the speed is regulated by the variable frequency drive.
The client noticed a significant amount of vibration coming from the crane throughout the hoisting process.
After the operation’s inspection, we identified that the vibration was coming from the hoisting gearbox. Alatas personnel examined the gear oil and discovered metal fragments, which showed the gearbox had failed.
