Alatas Americas recently performed a complete Palfinger refurbishment for a PK320002M foldable knuckle jib crane. The Palfinger deck crane is used on a government research vessel and was in poor condition due to corrosion and missing parts.

With Alatas’ global reputation of multi-disciplined engineers and the ability to work with an extensive range of crane types and manufacturers, we contacted to provide a full repair package of the client’s Palfinger PK320002M. Before beginning the Palfinger repairs, Alatas Americas arranged to remove the crane from the government research vessel and transport it to the Alatas Americas workshop in Manvel, TX USA, where we conducted the refurbishment to the foldable knuckle jib crane.
