December 2013. The project in Helsingborg, Sweden, consisted of the exchange of all four trolley wheels, followed by a complete alignment procedure. Driving by service van from The Netherlands, all tools, jacks and alignment equipment was shipped to Sweden for this short notice service intervention.
Rotterdam, The Netherlands | Consultancy services ECT Delta Terminal
2012-2013. Langeveld Project Management B.V. has delivered consultancy engineering services in the procurement process of 5 Super Post Panamax cranes for ECT Delta in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Besides a complete check of all the calculations and drawings of the Chinese crane builder ZPMC, a separate calculation model was made of the cranes, enabling a full check of the steel structures. The cranes were built and shipped fully erect from Shanghai to Rotterdam.
October 2013. The weight measurement of a container crane is of paramount importance to many parties. Both the crane builder as well as the operator benefit from the insight provided from an accurate weight measurement. This insight varies from the actual load on the quay rails or e.g. the stability under storm conditions to even the fatigue load in normal operation. From the weight measurement, also the location of the Center of Gravity in the X-Y plane is calculated.
In order to serve the involved parties, the crane weight of the newly delivered Ship to Shore container cranes was measured at the ICTSI terminal in Manzanillo, Mexico. Flying in with a full set of weight measurement equipment from The Netherlands, Langeveld has measured the weight of the cranes in all operational conditions.
April 2013. Interim project management services were delivered for the commissioning of two newly delivered Kalmar cranes to Congo Terminal, Pointe Noire. After the cranes arrived fully erected from China, the final commissioning was finalized on site in Congo. The delivered services comprised of the commissioning process, hand-over testing and load testing, witnessed by the representative of the Bolloré-group.
July 2013. For the Istanbul project, the Langeveld team flew to Turkey with the complete alignment equipment. Making use of the latest techniques, the trolley wheel alignment was adjusted within the international cranes standards. Accurate alignment of the trolley wheels is of utmost importance for the driver’s comfort. Apart from this, wear and tear process between the wheels and the rails is slowed down significantly. Consequently, also the power consumption of the crane is affected positively.
2008-2009. Yemen Red Sea Ports Corporation (Hodeidah Port) Contracts Langeveld
In 2003 crane builder FIGEE delivered two container cranes to the Port of Hodeidah. In a severe accident in 2008, one of these cranes collapsed. On 13th of November 2008, the Yemen Red Sea Ports Corporation (Port of Hodeidah), Yemen, awarded Langeveld Project Management with the supervision contract for the repair of their FIGEE Container Crane No3.
Langeveld Project Management has managed the repair project on behalf of YRSPC in all relevant disciplines: engineering, calculations, quality control, transportation, heavy lifting and commissioning.
Cartagena, Colombia | Modification and trolley wheel alignment
July 2014. Not all trolleys allow for accurate wheel alignment in their original design. Following an adaptation in the trolley wheel assembly on the ‘Kalmar’ STS crane of the latest generation in the Port of Cartagena, the eight trolley wheels were successfully aligned to the FEM Standard.
