Introduction:

In the intricate world of maritime operations, ensuring the seamless functionality of crane systems is paramount for smooth cargo handling. When issues arise, swift and precise troubleshooting becomes the key to minimizing downtime and optimizing operational efficiency. Alatas Turkey, renowned for its technical prowess, recently embarked on a mission to Italy to address electrical system malfunctions in Crane No. 2. This technical odyssey revealed challenges, solutions, and a testament to Alatas Turkey’s commitment to delivering operational excellence.

Background:

Commissioned to troubleshoot the electrical system of Crane no.2, Alatas Turkey’s team of seasoned technicians set sail for Italy. The mission was clear: identify, diagnose, and rectify any issues compromising the crane’s performance. With a reputation for handling complex maritime challenges, Alatas Turkey technicians were well-prepared for the task at hand.

Alatas’ Solution:

On reaching the vessel in Italy, the Alatas Turkey technicians meticulously executed a comprehensive troubleshooting process. Armed with expertise and cutting-edge tools, they delved into the intricacies of Crane no.2’s electrical system to pinpoint the root causes of malfunctions. This journey into the heart of the crane’s mechanisms unveiled a multifaceted challenge involving both hardware and software components.

Job Scope:

The technicians commenced their task by subjecting Crane No. 2 to a battery of tests, exposing a fault in the DC-DC converter. Further investigation led them to the electrical panel, where they unearthed a shortcut in the cable (X1.100) of the auxiliary winch temperature sensor. Methodically removing this compromised cable, the technicians meticulously scrutinized the entire crane, ensuring that no stone was left unturned in their pursuit of a resolution.

As the inspection unfolded, the team encountered an anomaly in Crane No. 2’s main hoist limit switches, specifically noting a malfunction in the up limit function. Despite an exhaustive examination of all electrical lines, the technicians discerned no physical issues, prompting speculation that the root cause might be embedded within the software architecture. This presented a formidable challenge, as the software limitations restricted their ability to make the necessary adjustments.

Undeterred by the software constraints, Alatas Turkey technicians persisted in their efforts. While facing obstacles in adjusting Crane No. 1’s auxiliary winch and main hoist limit switches, they exercised ingenuity to ensure that both cranes were ultimately delivered to customers in fully operational conditions.
