Specialist NewsComments Off on Four Day extensive Seminar in Singapore Seminar completed
Alle delegates enjoyed the way Richard showed “How to handle Heavy Lifts Safely”. By means of simple timber models, Richard explained to this group the three Laws of Newton and How forces can be controlled and incidents and accidents can be avoided.
If you missed this Seminar, Register NOW for the Brisbane Seminar from 7-9 Nov. 2016 in Australia. There are still places available.
Contact Mrs. Nathalie Ong or Joan Dee Lim for details. e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
I look forward meeting you at the Seminar in Brisbane.

Specialist NewsComments Off on Video: -Guidance- “Lifting a Load with several mobile cranes (Multiple Lifting)”
Below an extract with some Guidance for de-rating crane capacity when multiple crane lifts are executed. For the Complete Document click HERE
It clearly describes that the de-rating of a crane is depending on the location of the lift points in relation to the CoG of the load.
During my carreer, I have planned and supervised a lot of multiple crane lifts and provided the correct lift plan is made and provisions are taken to monitor the forces in the lift blocks of all cranes, it can be done safely.
See pictures and videos below:
Lifting a 200 Tons Pressure vessel onto a table top foundation using a Demag TC-2000 and 200 Tons Hydraulic tail crane
Watch the video below:
Lifting of a 420 Tons pressure vessel with two Demag TC-3000 cranes and a CC-2000 tail crane. An inclinometer was fitted to the skirt of the column to monitor the exact level between both lifting trunions.

A Historical video of the complex transport and erection of a large column for DSM in the Netherlands, back in 1988 executed by Van Seumeren.
It involved the load-out and roll-on into the Lastdrager 19 of a large 63 m long column and a weight of 420 tons from the small town of Goes in the West of the Netherlands, via the inland waterways to Urmond, in Limburg. There the column was rolled off and transported to the jobsite and subsequently erected using two Demag TC-3000 cranes and a CC2000 tail crane.

Back in 1989, Van Seumeren Holland erected 10 large refinery columns at the Finaneste Oil Refinery in Antwerp.
As there was in those days not a single crane available that could lift this heavy and large column of 82 m length and a weight of 512 tons, it was decided to use two Demag TC-3000 cranes and a CC-2000 crane tail crane.
A swiveling inclinometer was installed at the skirt end of the column in order to monitor the exact horizontally of both lifting trunnions while the column was being erected. To learn more about this check out www.heavyliftspecialist.com
Stability of the Load, when lifting from lift points below the CoG
A Storage tank is lifted with both heavy lift mast cranes from the Jumbo heavy Lift vessel.
The lifting slings are long enough to create a stable lift.
In case you want to know more about Stability of the Load click HERE and purchase the Seminar Slides Package
The example below, shows that it can go completely wrong, when these basic rules are not absorbed.
Mobile Harbor crane was lifted with insufficient stability and toppled while being offloaded. More details and video of this incident in the Seminar Slides package Click HERE
Be very carefull when using these kind of lift beams and when you are lifting from lift points below the CoG. The load will topple and is unstable as can be seen in above picture. Learn more HERE
When lifting loads from lift points above the CoG, it will always be a stable load and when distances between the lift points and CoG are far apart the load variations in both cranes are minimal.
Crowds of people turned out to watch as the world’s largest vessel, Allseas’ “Pioneering Spirit”, departed Rotterdam Saturday morning 6 August 2016.
Allseas’ record-breaking single-lift installation/decommissioning and pipelay vessel has been moored in Rotterdam’s Alexiahaven since January 2015 for installation, commissioning and testing of the topsides lift system.
“Pioneering Spirit” will now head to the Southern North Sea to perform offshore trials throughout August, which will include a series of test platform topsides installation and removal exercises under varying weather conditions.
After the successful completion of offshore trials, “Pioneering Spirit” is expected to sail north to the Yme field, offshore Norway, to remove the 13,500 t Yme mobile offshore production unit (MOPU) for Repsol.
Following removal of the Yme platform, “Pioneering Spirit” will return to Rotterdam where the remaining four topsides lifting beams will be installed for the Shell Brent Delta topsides removal, scheduled for the summer of 2017. SOURCE: Allseas

Lifting works at second wooden bridge highway A7 Sneek, Netherlands by Wagenborg Nedlift
Highway A7 is already under construction for a while. Back in 2008, a remarkably designed wooden bridge was placed across the highway. A few days ago, the assembly works for a new wooden bridge, the second one, took place. A nice piece of lifting works, carried out by 6 heavy mobile cranes: 2 times 200 tons crane, one 250 tons crane, one 300 tons crane and 2 times a 500 tons crane. Together, they carefully placed the wooden bows of each 120 tons on the (wooden!) bridge deck. A precise piece of work, everything has to fit exactly. The crane operators were a real team working together very closely, which resulted in a smooth lifting operation and of course some nice pictures of all red/white cranes. During the night of 20/21 November, the complete bridge of 320 tons will be placed onto foundation. 192 wheels of SPMT trailers will be used to realize this next challenge.

Rotrans South Africa Transported a Trafo of 12m (l) x 4.5m (w) x 5m (h) 357 ton over Slope gradients of max 14% from Richards Bay (sea level) up mid point 1850 m above and back down to inland to Lephalale at 800m above (1200km) averaging 50km a day. A special bridge girder to spread this enormous load was used from ALE Heavy Lift. See pictures below:

Transport and lifting works at Moerdijk, Holland
At the site of Essent’s new powerplant in Moerdijk, Wagenborg Nedlift has been quite active with heavy equipment lately. First of all, the boiler modules of the new boiler unit were installed. With weights up to 243 ton per unit, Wagenborg Nedlift provided a 750 tons and a 350 tons crawler to do the job. Together with the Spanish construction company of the power plant, these lifting works were carried out completely according to schedule. In the meanwhile, a heavy transformer sailed from Korea to Moerdijk. It was a challenge to get this giant of 278 tons onto foundation. Wagenborg Nedlift’s hydraulic lifting gantry was perfect fit for the job and within hours, the transformer was put in place.
