Our job isn’t done when one of our spreaders is delivered to your port or terminal. It has just begun. We know that you don’t buy a spreader, you buy a function. And with our extensive maintenance and service programme, we’ll be there to make sure that this function is in place day after day, year after year.
For those terminals aiming at keeping downtime at a minimum and spending as little as possible on corrective maintenance, it is essential to have correctly trained staff. A well trained maintenance organization is often a key to successfully keeping key performance indicators up in terms of productivity and availability. sfPORTEQ can offer training on spreaders for all levels of the organization, conducted by engineers with solid first hand experience or terminal service and who have been part of designing and developing the products.
Our spreaders are tailored to suit customer’s conditions and crane interfaces. To ensure that the spreader goes into service as smoothly as possible and that the customers expectations are met. sfPORTEQ offers installation and commisioning by hand picked engineers specially trained for this assignment.
The sfPORTEQ spreaders have been designed with special attention given to maintenance, keeping it as simple as possible for those performing the maintenance. With decades of experience in designing spreaders, our engineers can assist and offer recommendations on existing equipment, as well as undertake refurbishments and upgrades, either in the customers’ or our own premises.
We are doing upgrades on equipment for the customer needs, for both mechanical and electrically so that the equipment has the latest design and material available in the market. This is to create increased reliability and productivity for the customer. Examples: Modifying the mechanical twistlock actuation with our designated system. Control system upgrades with the latest components available, usage of off the shelf components. Programmed with the customers specification.
