Troubleshooting Favelle Favco PC150 Offshore Crane


The Tender Barge is equipped with 1 unit Favelle Favco Offshore Crane type PC150 and one unit type 6/10K Favelle Favco Crane. The PC150 crane developed a problem with the luffing system. A maker's engineer already had attended previously, but the problem still persisted.

ALATAS Singapore Pte Ltd was called in for emergency troubleshooting. Our multi-disciplined Engineer diagnosed the problem, which was due to internally worn hydraulic luffing motors, both motors had exceeded the internal leak-oil amount and were replaced with new Rexroth motors, type A2FM107, supplied by ALATAS Singapore. Besides that, our engineer also traced and rectified a slewing problem and carried out a comprehensive crane assessment as per ALATAS Offshore Crane Check-list.

Here is what the owner had to say about the professionalism of ALATAS Crane Engineers:

"I have just returned onshore from the Rig and would like to comment on the Alatas crane service engineer that was assigned to us

He is an asset and a credit to Alatas.

His performance onboard over the past week has been outstanding. He is hard working, methodically working through all the crane hydraulic systems and rectifying several areas that would develop into potential failures. He would clearly explain his logic and reasoning, always smiling, and without repeating myself, very professional.

Too many times previously I have had experience of service engineers who do not want to get involved and desperate to get off the rig as soon as they arrive. I have heard many excuses, and they have also left without the actual problem being correctly identified and correctly repaired. With your engineer, this most certainly was not the case. He worked hard and got the required results.

Now we are comfortable with the performance of this PC150 crane to perform heavy lift operation within the next few weeks

I can reassure you that Alatas will always be our preferred vender for all matters relating to cranes as long as I am in this region. This comment I have passed onto the management also.

I feel it is important to feedback this information.

We, here as a team in Myanmar, are also very happy with the parts service we have received recently from ALATAS. Goods are received in a timely manner which is vital for our company to operate efficiently.

Many thanks once again.
