The management of Dubai Docks invited Alatas to join their professional internal maintenance team for these Bailey dock crane repairs. This specific crane serves two of the largest dock facilities at the yard in Bur Dubai.
There were also problems with the electric, pneumatic and hydraulic control systems as well as the electric frequency drive for aux hoist, which had almost degraded beyond repair.
The owners engaged the services of another leading crane repair company, but no progress was made during troubleshooting.

Why Alatas were chosen
With our expertise in procuring spare parts for outdated cranes, experienced engineers and our workshop resources, Alatas was a perfect fit for these Bailey dock crane repairs.
The project, managed jointly with the Dubai Drydocks, was the first government contract Alatas Dubai received despite being a still relatively young operation in the Middle East.
The handover of the appreciation certificate of Drydocks World to Alatas Dubai underlines their satisfaction with the service they received from us.
We’re looking forward to continuing to work with them for the years to come.
