The deck crane hoisting system of a vessel faced a critical failure, prompting the intervention of Alatas Turkey technicians. The need for a quick and effective resolution was imperative to minimize downtime and ensure the vessel’s operational efficiency. The failure impacted cranes no. 2, 3, and 4, necessitating a thorough examination of the hydraulic systems to identify and rectify the underlying issues.
Alatas Turkey technicians, recognized for their expertise in maritime equipment, swiftly responded to the call for assistance. Their primary objective was to identify and rectify the hydraulic system issues affecting cranes no. 2, 3, and 4. Through a systematic approach, they addressed the root causes of the failures, ensuring a comprehensive restoration of each crane’s functionality.
The Alatas Turkey technicians embarked on a journey to Kocaeli to attend to the vessel and assess the deck crane hoisting system failure. Each crane presented unique challenges, demanding meticulous attention to detail and specialized solutions.
Crane No. 2:
Technicians discovered a decrease in hydraulic oil levels during the operation and testing of Crane No. 2. A meticulous inspection revealed an oil leak from the brake unit. The prompt replacement of damaged components, including o rings and seals, allowed for the resumption of cargo operations. However, the absence of spare parts onboard highlighted the importance of acquiring emergency components.
Crane No. 3:
The examination of Crane No. 3 revealed an issue with the lifting drum’s rotation speed. Technicians identified damage to the hydro-motor shaft, necessitating the replacement of key components. Subsequent repairs, including the replacement of damaged rubber components, ensured Crane No. 3 could resume normal operations.
Crane No. 4:
Challenges with the hoisting drum’s functionality in Crane No. 4 were traced to hydraulic oil leakage from the gearbox system. Technicians, through a comprehensive investigation and overhaul, replaced damaged components, including a broken bearing in the brake unit. The successful replacement of the spare brake unit and hydro-motor restored Crane No. 4 to operational status.
In summary, the expertise of Alatas Turkey technicians proved instrumental in swiftly identifying and resolving hydraulic system issues in Cranes 2, 3, and 4. Their proactive approach not only restored the cranes to working order but also emphasized the critical importance of having spare components readily available for emergency situations. This successful intervention underscores the significance of timely and specialized technical support in maintaining the efficiency of maritime operations.
