Challenge/objectives

Rental cranes are a cost effective temporary solution that can support a platform’s existing crane during specific projects that require additional lifting capacity.

Our client in India required a temporary crane to assist with a number of dynamic sea lifts up to 15MT at a 15m radius during a specific project period.

 


 

Solution applied

We supplied our client with a rental crane appropriate for their needs which provided them with a 24 hour reliable solution for their lifting requirements.

 

  • A survey and feasibility study were carried out to determine the most appropriate crane for the job and structural design reviews allowed us to establish the most appropriate method of securing the crane to the platform – a dedicated skid frame positioned on load bearing beams fixed to the platform
  • An ECR SL 20-50 stiff leg rental crane, which has a lifting capacity of 25 tons, was chosen for the job
  • Plans for the crane’s transportation, assembly, hook up, commissioning and testing were drawn up and supplied
  • We supplied crane operations and maintenance support on a 24 hour basis for the duration of the project

 


 

Summary of services/equipment deployed

Outcome/benefits

The solution applied by the Sparrows Group provides a number of benefits:

  • 100% 24 hour availability of an additional platform crane to double lifting capacity
