During a routine call by a UAE based bulk carrier vessel, a flatness check was done on the deck crane pedestal flange and it was found to be beyond the permissible limits.

Metalock Engineering AE was called upon to do on-site machining of both the upper and lower flanges of the crane pedestal of the vessel which was docked in Port Rashid, Dubai.

The lower flange had an OD of 2.6 meter and the flange facing machine was installed in a horizontal position to complete the machining.

The flange facer had to be modified in order to machine the top flange of the crane pedestal which had an OD of 2.8 meter. The job was completed within 5 days.
