While ZPMC is enlarging its crane service capabilities outside China with a dedicated team in Europe, ZPMC is bound to complete the modifications of part of PSA’s container crane fleet for relocation within its Belgian terminals.
The special team for crane upgrades is based in Rotterdam and consists of local management with extensive knowledge of crane engineering, each of them having a long track record in this type of business.
The turnkey project included a total of eight cranes, including the heightening of four cranes for serving larger ships. All cranes required modifications to the rail span as well as the electric installation and other mechanical parts to adapt to their new location.
“WE ARE PROUD THAT WE FINISHED THIS PROJECT SUCCESSFULLY AND WITHIN THE AGREED TIMEFRAME.”
Peter Welvaert, Head of Procurement at PSA Belgium: “We know ZPMC of its capabilities to supply new equipment and we are now very pleased that they are also able to upgrade and service our cranes with a local team of crane experts. The upgrade project was executed very professionally.
ZPMC Crane Upgrades Director Eelco de Lange said the project was a great success. The cranes were raised in an extreme tight schedule to fit customer’s planning. “All engineering, material supplies and operational activities were done in-house, that allowed us to plan and execute the project with a crucial hourly accuracy,” said Eelco. “We know what our European customers expect from us with regard to planning, safety, quality and execution of a project”.
ZPMC is changing the European market for this typical business, by using its strength as OEM crane manufacturer together with strong local operations. One of the additional advantages for the customer is that ZPMC will continue its structural warranty on the crane and supply a new CE-certificate.
