Modulift beams on Liftek load test
By Niamh Marriott07 November 2022
Two Modulift spreader beams were used to perform a 2,420 tonne load test in Dubai, UAE, by Liftek International.
The MOD 1000 beams were used in a crucifix configuration to perform the test, with each beam lifting a load of 990 tonnes, and the remaining load being suspended directly from the crane hook.
The project was a collaboration between several specialist equipment suppliers around the world. P-6043 Green Pin shackles, of 600 and 500 tonnes, were provided by Royal Van Beest.
Wireless load links, load pin shackles and T24 electronics came from Load Monitoring Systems, and two waterbags, 110MT and 50MT, cable laid grommets and round slings manufactured by Liftek International were also used.
Sarah Spivey, managing director at Modulift, said, “It’s encouraging to see our beams being used as part of such a demanding project.
“The MOD 1000 is ideal for this type of lift due to its relatively low self-weight. Our spreader beams are specially designed to provide a lightweight solution so that cranes can work at maximum capacity.”
All products in the Modulift spreader beam range are compliant with ASME, BS and DNV standards.
Capacities range from 6 to 3,000 tonnes and can be re-used without the need to re-test or re-certify even when dismantled and re-configured.
