In early July our engineers were called to New Zealand to investigate the slew bearings on cranes no.2 and 3 on a bulk carrier. This job included a rocking test on all four of the cranes and greasing of cranes no. 2 and 3 after contamination was detected in grease expelled from outside the slew bearing. After much troubleshooting regarding the loud noises being produced by cranes 2 and 3, all four cranes have now been passed for continued operation by the class surveyor.
This was another example of how our maritime customers regularly comission Hydraulic Distributors to travel internationally to their ships due to our ability to mobilise in 24 hours or less. Learn more about our deck crane and winch services on our services page.
