Dhaka, November 2006: The decision to build a new sugar refinery was taken early 2005. Monem Sugar Refinery Ltd (MSRL) looked carefully at their options for the unloading of ships with Brazilian sugar. The extensive market survey resulted earlier this year in the purchase of a state-of-the-art 700-series E-Crane® with 26 metres (86 feet) outreach.
Carrying out complicated lifts in a safe way requires careful planning and skilled personnel. On site E-Crane engineer Jean-Marie double checks every detail before the actual lift takes place.
The crane left the assembly shop on-time in Belgium early july 2006. Finally and after a long voyage from Antwerp to Dhaka, with transloading in the harbor of Chittagong, the crane arrived in Dhaka early October. The erection of the E-Crane® started on October 19th. Under the supervision of 2 experienced E-Crane® erection engineers (Jean-Marie and Klaas) and with the help of the technical staff from MSRL the crane was safely assembled.
After only 10 days of hard work the E-Crane® was completely erected and the final on-site testing and tuning was started. For the next two days the crane was extensively and intensively tested and when and where necessary final adjustments were made to the electrical and hydraulic system to ensure peak performance ! To guarantee that the crane was commissioned in the best way possible and to make sure that the crane was going to be correctly maintained the operators and on-site mechanics participated in an intensive 3 day training course.
The newly installed crane is exercised for testing and tuning purposes.
On november 1st the “Monem Sugar Refinery”-management officially took reception of their E-Crane® ! All E-Crane® employees would like to use this opportunity to thank Abdul Monem for the confidence in our product and we wish Monem Sugar Refinery the very best for the future.
