Frequently Asked Questions

At EIWAA Marine Services, we specialize in conducting comprehensive brake-holding testing of winches to ensure the safety and reliability of your equipment. Our brake-holding testing services involve assessing the winch’s braking system to determine its ability to securely hold the load at various capacities. This testing is crucial to verify that the brake can effectively prevent the winch from unintentional movement or slippage, ensuring the safety of personnel and property during lifting and hauling operations.

At EIWAA Marine, we specialize in conducting comprehensive water bag load testing of cranes at Saudi offshore locations to ensure the safety and reliability of your equipment. Our team of skilled technicians and engineers is equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to perform thorough testing procedures to assess the crane’s load capacity and lifting performance. The water bag will be filled with water to the required weight, and then attached to the crane’s hook or lifting device. The crane will be positioned and configured to lift the water bag to the required height or distance. The crane will be operated to lift the water bag to the specified height or distance while monitoring the lifting speed, acceleration, and deceleration. Our team will collect data on the crane’s performance, including lifting capacity, lifting speed, and acceleration, during the testing process. The crane will be required to hold the load at the specified height or distance for a minimum period to ensure that it can maintain the load safely. The load testing process may need to be performed at multiple elevations or distances to ensure that the crane can lift the load safely at various heights or distances.

Lifting gear inspection is a critical process that involves evaluating the condition and performance of lifting equipment, including cranes, hoists, winches, and other lifting devices. The purpose of lifting gear inspection is to identify any potential issues or defects that could affect the safety and reliability of your equipment. A visual inspection of the lifting gear is conducted to identify any visible signs of damage, wear, or corrosion. Load testing is performed to assess the lifting gear’s capacity to lift heavy loads. Cargo gear testing involves evaluating the condition and performance of cargo gear, including nets, ropes, slings, and other lifting accessories. The purpose of cargo gear testing is to ensure that the cargo gear is properly maintained and can safely lift and transport heavy loads.
