Weekend Cranage of 19,500 KG Vessels 16/02/2013
Posted on by mechanicalmovements
Mechanical Movements undertook cranage of 2 19,500 kg vessels (please see Gallery page 7-8)
Mechanical Movements lifted the vessels off the lorry’s, once the vessels where on the ground we connected 1 100t mobile crane and 1 70t mobile crane to each end of the vessels (this is called a tandem lift)
The vessels were then lifted to a suitable height for the 100t to take the weight of the front of the vessel and the 70t to lower the bottom end of the vessel down,once the vessel was vertical the 70t was un-stropped and the 100t took the full 19,500 kg.
This was repeated for the second vessel and both vessel’s positioned into final resting place.
This was a complex lift that was made easy by Mechanical Movements.
