Alatas Americas was contracted to conduct 5 Yearly Surveys at TNG Shipyard, Mexico and carry out complete change-outs of slew studs two NMF rope luffing deck cranes.
Our Alatas Field Service team based in Mexico mobilised at the TNG Shipyard in Veracruz, Mexico. To be able to remove the corroded studs, the team used nut breakers to remove the nuts from the crane and systematically replaced all slew studs and tension each one according to the engineering requirements.
Then the Field Service team in Mexico completed some additional remedial work on the NMF rope luffing deck cranes such as replacing slew brakes and the aux swivel and concluded the work in Veracruz with NDT inspections as per class requirements.
The cranes’ vessel then sailed to Houston, Texas for load testing and DMSA04 Load Master calibration which was carried about by a team of Alatas technical engineers based in Texas, who operate all across the Gulf of Mexico.
