CM Technologies Corp Successfully Troubleshoots 4 kV Festoon Cable at the APM Terminals’ Facility in Elizabeth, NJ
The Crane Manager at APM Terminals’ Elizabeth, New Jersey facility reported a complete failure of 4 kV festoon cable on Crane #4 in December 2013. The crane was forced to shut down until the problem was resolved, limiting the shipyard’s ability to load and unload boats. A damaged wire causing a short circuit was believed to be the culprit. After three months of downtime spent troubleshooting the problem, CM Technologies was called to track down the fault.
