This is a 70 ton rotor dropping, check out the geezer walking along the split line seconds before it falls.
Many say that it was a wire rope failure. Some say operator error, or even the crane manufacturer. The more I look at this though the less I think it was a wire rope failure. It looks more like a load brake failure to me. If it was a wire rope I think it would have dropped quicker than it did, and you would have seen the frayed ends on top of the rotor when it fell to the ground. This crane was hoisting and moving a 70 ton gas turbine rotor that was worth 8.5 million dollars. The failure almost killed two workers. They were so close to the drop that it must have been pretty traumatic for them. This is a great video for training purposes to show why you should not be standing under a load during operation.
This week Richard L.Krabbendam the “Heavy Lift Specialist”, presented his two day Masterclass/ Seminar to an international group of participants at the Breakbulk Antwerp Conference & Exhibition, which took place from the 13-17th of May 2013 in Antwerp, Belgium.
Below a series of pictures of the participants which came from: Australia, Germany, Uruguay, Brazil, Chili, The Netherlands, Belgium, The UK, Japan, Spain, Bulgaria, France, Denmark, Italy and some Testimonials:
- This Seminar is very interested for me (especially for Transport with Hydraulic Trailers & Load-outs). I will recommend my colleagues to attend this one!!
- More Sea Transport & Lashing!!
- Great experience. Good lesson is: learn from mistakes: people usually want to forget!
- Fantastic Workshop! This presentation was excellent, perhaps 3 day Workshop would be better to allow to absorb the information
The next two Day Masterclass/Seminar “Heavy Transport & Lifting” is scheduled on the 4+5th of September 2013 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Click here to register.

How is the Barcelona Metro constructed?? Herrenknecht tunneling video, demonstrating tunnel boring machine operation.
Tunnel depth varies between 40 and 130 feet beneath the street surface, depending on the location.
The deepest portion will be where it passes under the Stockton Tunnel. It can push forward five feet at a time, up to fifty feet a day, depending on soil conditions.
You want to know some facts and figures about the biggest stand and the largest construction machinery trade fair world wide?
Well, this is the movie to watch!
The Gumusut-Kakap project includes the joint development of two ultra deep water discoveries – Gumusut and Kakap.
The fields are located within Blocks J and K, about 120km offshore from Sabah, Malaysia. Water depth is in the region is 1,200m (3,937ft).
Sabah Shell was the operator of Gumusut and Murphy Oil, the operator of the Kakap field. Development of the two fields was combined under an unitisation agreement signed by the partners in 2006.
