DP World Antwerp Gateway TES Industrial Systems has received the order from DP World Antwerp Gateway to replace the frequency inverters for two container cranes.

 

The frequency inverters (Masterdrive) were due for replacement after 14 loyal years. The Current master drive series is in the "phase-out". In order to keep unexpected stops of the crane as small as possible, TES Industrial Systems B.V. replaced the controllers with the new Sinamics series. This was possible so that all new controllers were prepared in such a way that they were involved in software and hardware “Retrofit”. Thanks to preparation preparation for engineering and assembly, the controls on the crane were successfully replaced in a very short time and the downtime was minimal.

 

Jurgen van Remoortere - Automation Manager: “We are very satisfied and enthusiastic about the professional approach of TES. At the start of the project discussion it was clear what our requirements and expectations were, which TES fully met. They have prepared, documented and organized this project with a critical eye on safety and effectiveness. The project leader, Foreman and engineers have worked very professionally, fully in accordance with the agreements made. By compiling a detailed safety, work and test plan together, we have succeeded in using the crane 100% operationally from day one. In view of these facts, we have again placed an order with TES Industrial Systems for the conversion of other 2 container cranes ”
