In a few time, after commissioning, the operations team of Saudi Aramco will take over and will do what the units were built for - execute wireline jobs under harsh conditions in the desert.

New Wireline Crane Trucks passed through FAT by Aramco’s technical experts
Over the past week we were visited by a team of experts from Saudi Aramco for technical acceptance of their new Wireline Crane Trucks. Both types of the unit, the double drum version on a 6x4 chassis as well as the single drum version on a 4x2 chassis were scheduled for the factory acceptance test.
Aramco’s inspectors checked for all functions through their paces. In addition to the compliance of the technical specifications, the manufacturing quality of wireline trucks was examined closely. A few requests for changes were documented by Koller’s engineers and forwarded to the manufacturing for immediate execution.
The entire FAT took place in a very pleasant and professional atmosphere. We thank the team of Saudi Aramco and look forward to future cooperation.
