Summary of the Project

Unique Group successfully completed a 1000t proof load test on a gantry crane at a shipbuilding facility in Italy, using our pioneering brand of Water Weights 110t and 55t load testing bags.

Client Requirement

The client wanted to perform 1000t load test on their gantry crane using Water Weights as a part of their routine maintenance campaign.

Unique Solution Delivered

The heavy load test was achieved in an easy, safe and cost-effective manner using our massive 110t capacity Water Weights load testing bags. A load of 1000t was applied to the spreader beam as specified by the client using 10 x 110t lift bags and 4 x 55t bags. Britlift 1350t modular spreader beam were used for safe and efficient rigging. We also performed separate testing of hook 1 and 3, including separate overloads and function testing of main hook number 3.
