A Suez Canal rescue boat required Dongnam crane repairs where the slewing bearing had seized. Without a functioning crane, the vessel would not be allowed to pass through the Suez Canal.
So it was diverted to Alatas Singapore for emergency repairs. Alatas attended and proceeded to dismantle the slewing bearing, re-machine the raceways and fitted new oversized ball bearings and spacers.
With the repaired slewing ring installed, the crane was successfully tested and the vessel was on its way.
