Modernisation of cranes normally includes repairs and renewal of crane structures, mechanisms, and electrical systems. Crane refurbishment is required when crane performance has generally deteriorated and breakdowns are frequent. This can be the result of:
- Lack of maintenance
- Crane aging due to prolonged wear and tear
- Inability to procure spares and spare parts cannibalisation – rendering some cranes permanently inoperable
- Corrosion to steel structure due to poor coatings or harsh weather
