Hoist repairs on bulk carrier in Western Australia

Late last Tuesday we received a call to attend our customer’s bulk carrier in Kwinana Western Australia. By Wednesday Warren and Blake were in WA ready to carry out repairs to 4 Mitsubishi deck cranes, in order to overcome defect with winching down control.

Operational tests were carried out on cranes number 1, 2 3 & 4 and it was found that in all 4 cranes the hoisting lever was not returning to neutral on its own when hoisting down with the crane running. A Mitsubishi Heavy Industries approved “Neutral Support Device” was installed to each of the 4 cranes, and further tests conducted to ensure the control handle returned to neutral and that the winch brake was applying.

As Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ Australian agent for deck cranes and winches, our team members have been factory trained in Japan and are ready to assist with all aspects of Mitsubishi cranes and deck mounted winch repairs.
