Alatas Service: Field Service, Troubleshooting, System Upgrades
For this troubleshooting on TTS crane, a customer reported problems with one of their TTS cranes on a vessel in South Korea.
At first glance, there seemed to be a problem related to electronics. But the detailed analysis of the error messages by Alatas indicated that there was very likely a mechanical problem as well.
Job Scope for Troubleshooting for TTS Crane
It was agreed with the client that the Alatas Service Engineer from Alatas Hong Kong would hand electronic spares that would help fix the problem while the client would acquire a spare winch gearbox from a sister vessel that was in the area at the time.
The Service Engineer confirmed that the hoisting brake had been damaged by the failure of the electronic system.
He then sailed with the vessel from Korea to Japan to replace the hoisting gearbox and troubleshoot the electronic system. With the fault established, the crane was ready for operation at the arrival port in Japan.
