Crane conversion

Another example of the capabilities of our E&C department is the conversion of a Hitachi crane from diesel drive to electric drive. In this case the diesel engine was replaced by an electric motor, controlled by a frequency drive.

A rotary joint feeds electric power to the crane. Smaller systems needed to be adapted as well, like the airco and the ventilation system in the cabin. furthermore, some instrumentation is added to control the electric motor.
