Working in partnership with Alatas Worldwide Cranes, Alatas Engineering carried out the overhaul and service of a marine Palfinger knuckle boom crane.
In the experience of both companies it was probably the most difficult project undertaken to date in Alatas’ specially adapted facility in Bradford.
The badly corroded crane was painstakingly dismantled with all aspects photographed, inspected and recorded. The majority of the mechanical and hydraulic parts were over-hauled, with certain badly corroded parts being replaced with Palfinger original spares. The completed project took around 10-12 weeks, with a substantial cost saving against a new purchase.
