Design Review new built project STS crane

  • A new built STS crane for a customer in the Caribbean is being built by a reputable crane manufacturer in Europe. Kleiss Cranes Consultants was involved in various detailed design reviews, amongst others:
  • Power calculations for hoist, trolley, gantry and boom hoist were performed as part of a design review on a new built project for the Caribbean.
  • Also the selection of the motors, gearboxes and couplings were reviewed and commented. Some drive chains were advised to be reviewed as wind load calculation and sizing selection needed improvement
  • A study on corrosion protection on bolted connections was performed including a user survey.
  • On site inspections during the final assembly, commissioning and testing will be performed on various stages of this project.
