Alatas Field Technicians carried out this Kawasaki Deck Crane Upgrade aboard a vessel equipped with 4 Kawasaki KMH 3020/2/4S deck cranes.
The pinion and gear drives on hosting & luffing rope winch were severely worn down in all cranes and spare parts were no longer available.
Samples of the worn gears were removed by Alatas Indonesia Crane Engineers in Batam and sent to our workshop for remanufacturing.
Alatas’ technical department designed new gear wheels, submitted the design to class for approval and new gears were manufactured. This work also included the Material Certificate and final Classification Certificate.
The new gears were manufactured in Alatas Singapore’s Marine Engineering Workshop and then installed back to the vessel during Singapore anchorage.
The Staffa hoist and luffing motors were overhauled in our Hydraulic Workshop and the winches were fitted back into the winch frame complete with the refurbished hydraulic motors, overhauled brake cylinders and new brake bands.
