A Singapore shipyard had been contracted by a European customer to build a series of three hopper dredgers, and the new vessels needed to be equipped with cranes. Fuchs Cranes is a German crane manufacturer that makes monorail cranes, engine room cranes, and customized cranes. Alatas Singapore is their local sales and service center.
Alatas has been awarded the contract to supply a set of cranes per vessel, consisting of one engine room crane ( E/R crane model ED-30-9000 EKZ, SWL 3.0T ) and one low-height pump room crane ( overhead crane model ZDA-225-5000 EKZ, SWL 22.5T ) with load display.
Alatas’ new crane sales department handled the crane sale and commercial matters, while Alatas’ new crane commissioning department carried out the crane commissioning and site acceptance testing (SAT) on board the vessel at the shipyard.
Alatas’ advantage to the shipyard and owners is that crane sales and crane commissioning are handled by one office, Alatas Singapore Pte Ltd. It is dealt with by local sales personnel and by local crane engineers, who are available to attend on short notice whenever the yard’s schedule calls for it.
