KGW-Luzhou Deck Cranes, Replacement of Hoist Winch Gearbox
The vessel is equipped with 4 units deck cranes, SWL 30 ton made by KGW-Luzhou, model EH 3028-2.
Crane Nr 4 is out of order due to very heave leakage from the host winch gearbox. In order to have the crane operational at the next loading port, crane 3 hoist winch is to be installed into crane 4, and the job is to be carried out at Singapore Anchorage using a Floating Crane.
Furthermore, crane Nr 3 had suffered an accident due to a broken luffing wire rope, the crane boom had collapsed and smashed onto the motor grab. Bothe the damaged crane jib and motor grab had to be offloaded for steel repairs at ALATAS workshop ashore.
ALATAS Singapore Pte Ltd was entrusted with the repair job. Staging, Floating Crane, equipment and tools were arranged and ALATAS experienced deck machinery repair squad, lead by one of our senior marine crane engineers, carried out the job on a round the clock basis, ahead of the scheduled repair time
