Holcim Indonesia Prepares for Commissioning of 1500B Series E-Crane

in Tuban (Java, Indonesia)

A delegation from E-Crane, consisting of Mr. Lieven Bauwens, Mr. Bas Tolhuizen and Mr. Alan Choo, visited Tuban on October 30, 2013 for a kick-off meeting with Holcim personnel and its subcontractor Truba to discuss the upcoming erection/commissioning of a rail mounted 1500B series E-Crane at this greenfield cement plant.

Next to a site inspection detailed discussions were held about the sequence and procedures of the crane erection, detailed planning as well as the safety during this whole process.

An E-Crane erection supervision team is now scheduled to arrive in Tuban in early December 2013 to guide Holcim and Truba through this whole process. Upon completion of the erection and commissioning process a training program will follow for both crane operators as well as the maintenance staff to guarantee proper knowledge of all operational and maintenance related systems and processes.

The EMM (Electronic Machine Management) remote access module installed on this E-Crane will further guarantee optimum service back-up for a vital piece of equipment at this new facility.

The whole E-Crane organization wishes to thank Holcim for their hospitality during the important meeting in Tuban and is looking forward to a speedy and successful commissioning of Holcim’s first E-Crane in Indonesia.
