STS relocation

The intended relocation and upgrade of 2 container cranes generated the need for a study on the impact of the performance increase on the crane integrity and the different infra structural conditions of the new location.


Amongst others the following issues were studied:

  • recalculation of wind force and impact on wheel loads
  • change in wheel configuration
  • buffer situation at end stops and adjacent cranes
  • installed motor power, brake power and power distribution
  • wheel- and rail loads on new locationtravelling dynamics (skew, wind influence etc.)
