2x Monorail crane
2x Provision crane
2x Engine Room crane
2x Gangway

Before any load testing began, Alatas Indonesia sent one of their experienced service engineers to attend a safety meeting at PSA with the Captain and CE to discuss the job scope and conduct a toolbox talk and risk assessment.

The client’s cranes were due their five-yearly load tests. All the cranes: the Monorail, Provision, Engine Room and Accommodation Ladder and Gangways the were manufactured by Oriental. The Alatas service engineer performed the load tests with details as instructed by a DNV surveyor.
