Skelstart engine start module for port crane

RTG PORT CRANE
ENGINE START

Engine Start Module (ESM) - 100% reliable engine start even in adverse weather conditions

Benefits of our solution

  • Reliable engine starting system: no battery-based start failures
  • Cost saving: no costly downtime
  • 10 – 20 % less cranking time
  • Time saving: maintenance free device
  • 10+ years lifetime

Challenge

100% reliable engine start even in adverse weather conditions

  • Background
  • Diesel engine needs to be able to start reliably under all weather conditions
  • Lead-acid batteries are used as power packs to get started
  • Battery failure is the main reason why RTGs fail to start
  • The starter pack must be 100% reliable
  • Key Challenges
  • Many batteries needed to start the engine
  • Batteries can suffer from sulfation build-up
  • Batteries cannot start the diesel reliably
  • Frequent checks needed
  • known consequences
  • Failure to start the RTGs on time results in very costly downtime
