Firstly it continuously monitors the operating functions of spreaders to detect and identify decelerating performance, giving them “eyes and ears” to detect, understand, and resolve potential problems before they become real problems.
Secondly, it provides diagnosis of the source of faults when spreader downtime occurs. This enables service technicians to find and resolve problems more quickly so that spreader downtime can be minimised and spreader change-outs eliminated.
Rather than driving to the crane-mounted spreader and first looking for the problem (and then heading back to the service centre for spare parts or tools or wiring that may be needed), Bromma Fleet Doctor™ enables service technicians to know what they need to do before they even leave for the site of the crane spreader. This elimination of “fault search time” and the elimination of the time wasted during “back and forth” trips between the crane spreader on the quay and the maintenance operations centre helps to keep terminals operating in the green zone of higher productivity – which means a significant boost to loading and unloading productivity and faster vessel turnaround.
