Functional Requirement for the Crane

1 GENERAL

1. Project Description

To carry out the design, construction, delivery, installation, testing and completion of Two (2) units of
Rail Mounted Gantry Cranes having a rated load of 2x32,5 Metric Tons in twin lift mode. The cranes
shall be delivered in a fully assembled and tested condition.

2. Site

The Cranes shall be delivered and completed at the Purchaser’s site which is referenced in the Special
Conditions.

3. Overriding Requirement of the Purchaser

The Purchaser’s overriding requirement is for the Works to be suitable in all respects for safe, efficient
and continuous use under actual operational conditions in a modern, large capacity, international
container handling facility for a period of not less than twenty (20) years subject to fair wear and tear
(excluding categorically any fatigue failure), and routine maintenance.

For the purposes of this Contract acceptable routine maintenance shall be within the following general
parameters.

(1) For steel structures and related component parts, fittings and fixings, acceptable routine
maintenance shall be limited to the maintaining of the paint system as stated below.
Reinforcing, cutting out and/or replacement of any corroded, fatigued or defective steel or its
fixings, etc. shall be Defects remedial works and not maintenance.

(2) For the paint system acceptable routine maintenance shall be:

- Preparing and over coating the existing paint system at year 10 after the issuance of
the Taking-over Certificate.

- Removing defective parts of the paint system back to clean steel and repainting in
isolated areas but not exceeding in aggregate more than 1% and 2% of the total
surface area at years 5 and 10.

- The removal of the paint system back to steel and replacement of the paint system in
areas aggregating more than the above percentages of the total surface area of the
painted part of the Crane shall be Defects remedial works and not maintenance.

(3) For items of electrical and mechanical equipment, controls, systems,


components, fittings and fixings, acceptable maintenance shall be the periodic and routine
maintenance normally carried out on the various parts generally undertaken as established
practices of the Purchaser.

(4) The foregoing shall apply notwithstanding any inconsistent requirement or


information in any maintenance instructions provided by the Contractor or otherwise put
forward by the Contractor and any such inconsistent requirement or information shall not, and
shall not be relied on by the Contractor, to relieve, limit or diminish any obligation or liability of
the Contractor under the Agreement or otherwise including in relation to Defects.

4. Type of Crane

The Crane shall be a, electrically driven, rail mounted gantry crane with a self-driven trolley and cab. The
Crane drive and control shall be full AC inverter drive, with fully digitalized controls with PLC. The proposed
drive and control system shall be a proven system successfully operating on a similar capacity crane in
actual container handling operations.

5. Type of Cargo

The type of cargo to be handled by the Crane shall be:

1 ISO 20ft and 40 ft containers including high-cube, half height, flat rack containers.

2 Other types of container with ISO corner fittings at 20ft or 40 ft positions such as 45ft, 48ft and
53ft containers.

3 Containers with over-height cargoes through an existing over-height cargo container-lifting frame
owned by the Purchaser.

4 Damaged container with slings and shackles attached to lifting lugs of the spreader.

5 General cargo by Cargo Beam (ramshorn hook)

6 Trailers by Piggy Back Arms

Note: Exclusive accessories for handling high cube, half height and flat rack containers are not included.

6. Operating Environment and Design Aim

1 The Crane shall be operated and maintained on 24 hours per day basis in all weather conditions.
All electrical, electronic, and mechanical equipment shall be non-hygroscopic, non-corroding and
tropicalized for use in conditions stated elsewhere in this Specification.

7.1.16 Structural Maintenance Program

(1) The fatigue criteria in this Specification are based on producing a damage tolerant design.
Because of the scatter of fatigue performance and that usage may exceed the design
conditions, there is a risk that a structure or component may fail in service. When fatigue
cracks develop, the remaining structure should sustain the maximum working load until the
cracks are discovered. Satisfactory performance of the damage tolerant design, therefore,
depends on adequate methods of fatigue crack detection and the ability to repair or replace
the damaged component. The intent of this section is to define a method of routinely
inspecting for fatigue cracks to significantly improve the structural reliability.

(2) The inspection intervals defined below are based on fracture mechanics calculations and
reliability analysis and on the fact that fatigue cracks can be classified as infant failures and
aging failures. The first inspection should detect infant failures and the later periodic
inspections should detect aging failures. Infant failures are primarily due to deficient
fabrication, under estimation of the fatigue damage which may be due to deficient design or
excessive loading, or a combination of all these. Aging failures are primarily due to cumulative
damage from normal operations and properly designed and manufactured components.

(3) Since the integrity of the structure depends on the inspections and interpretation of the results
and the choice of repair, it is important for the Contractor to review all reports. So copies of all
inspection reports, reports of structural difficulties of any nature, and reports describing any
modifications will be sent the Contractor and to the Engineer.

(4) Periodic structural inspection is required to detect cracks that have developed during the
warranty period and the life of the crane.

(5) The Contractor shall repair, at his own cost, all defects and cracks on the cranes discovered
during the structural warranty period of ten years from the Date of issue of Taking-over
certificate, regardless of the cause. During the first ten years after the issue of the Taking-over

RMG Specification
Page 87 of 110
certificate, the Contractor shall repair all cracks that are not the result of Purchaser’s misuse of
the crane.

(6) No later than three (3) months before the arrival of the crane(s) the Contractor shall submit a
Structural Maintenance Program for review. The program shall be based on the principles of
fracture mechanics. This program shall include:

(i) Inspection intervals


(ii) Locations to be inspected
(iii) NDT procedures to be used
(iv) Reporting procedures
(v) Repair procedures
(vi) Documentation showing the parameters used to determine the inspection intervals in
accordance with the criteria specified below

(7) The first structural inspection will be made during the defect liability period, but later than after
200,000 moves, in accordance with the Structural Maintenance Program. The inspection results
will be given to the Contractor. Within 30 days, the Contractor shall submit a plan to repair any
defects found. Upon Purchaser’s approval of the Contractor’s plan, the Contractor shall repair the
defects at his expense. The Purchaser’s independent agency will inspect the repaired defects. If
any of the repairs are not acceptable the Contractor shall make additional repairs as necessary.
The cost of the inspection of the additional repairs shall be borne by the Contractor.

(8) Later inspections will be made according to the recommended inspection interval, which shall be
included in the Structural Maintenance Program. The inspection interval shall be determined
according to the following table “Inspection Interval Criteria”. Locations where the cumulative
damage ratio is less than the minimum 24-year values do not need to be included in the Structural
Maintenance Program. The first inspection period will begin after completion of the first inspection
during Defect Liability Period.

(9) The inspection method shall be selected to detect fatigue cracks. Only the critical locations need to
be inspected by NDT. The critical locations on all members are those locations where fatigue
cracks, if any, would be expected to initiate. The inspected region shall extend a reasonable
distance beyond the critical point. MT shall be used at the critical locations of filet welds and UT
shall be used at the critical locations of butt welds. VT shall be used at all locations of potential
fatigue cracks.

(10) The Contractor shall provide permanent access ladders and platforms at all inspection locations, with
inspection intervals of 12 years or less. Access shall meet applicable safety laws and regulations.
