Over the past couple of months Mechanical Movements have had a number of various cranes @Bedfont lakes, we carried out a full and complete lift and shift package. We have lifted plant ranging from boilers, chillers, pumps and calorifiers.
Mechanical Movements had a very challenging job to undertake @ Harbour Exchange.
Our client had a 6000 kg transformer which needed to travel up a car park ramp into the building.
The problem we had to tackle was load bearing, using steel plates to spread the weight and underpinning the ramp that helped solve this problem.
Once the transformer was lifted to the ramp (with our mobile crane) we attached 2 electric hoists to pull the unit up until we were on level ground.
Once we were on level ground we were able to maneuver the unit into a suitable position ready to float onto our steel lifting plate.
Once the transformer was in position and strapped down we were able to jack the complete lifting plate up to the required level ready to wheel the unit into final position.
This was a challenging job that Mechanical Movements were successful at completing. Our employees worked hard and deserve a big thank you for all of their hard work and dedication on this project. The client was left with an excellent impression of what Mechanical Movements had achieved.
If you are a business based in the United Kingdom, you may have heard about the R22 switchover. You may be wondering what exactly the new legislation involves and whether or not your business will be affected by it.

Mechanical Movements had a very hard job to undertake @ Canary Wharf RT5 .
We started setting out for this job on Friday due to the fact that RT5 is built on piles so the crane rigger pans had to be placed to the millimeter (this is to insure point loading is correct due to the concrete being very thin)
Once all rigging pans are set out we were able to rig both cranes ready for lifting at 6am Saturday morning.
We had to use two mobile cranes . One which was a 100 tonne to offload and build the cooling towers, which came on wide loads and in three sections per tower.
Once the towers were built we were able to lift the 13000 kg towers to roof level with the 200 tonne crane.( in total there were 12 sections which make up 4 BAC cooling towers)
Please see page 10 – 11 in our gallery for photos of the lift.
I would like to thank all the guys that where involved with this job and i would like to thank Canary Wharf for making this job happen.
