Kennards Hire Lift & Shift hired out its 300 tonne modular spreader beam to help ‘The Lifting Company’ install a 110 tonne transfer station at a site in Western Australia.

Part of a conveyor system along the rail transit line where iron ore cars tip out for mineral inspection before being transported and loaded onto ships, the transfer station module was installed from a radius of 67 metres using a Terex Demag CC8800 1600 tonne crawler crane. Measuring 26 metres in length, Kennards Hire’s 300 tonne spreader beam was assembled to 15 metres, allowing the module to be lifted level in a single lift and installed in approximately two hours.

The flexibility of the modular spreader beam was a big advantage for the crane operator and installation crew for this type of lift. Kennards Hire Lift & Shift’s spreader beam was easy to configure to the optimum length, simplifying the lifting operation.

This versatility of the 300 tonne spreader beam makes it ideal for a range of lifting applications across mining sites, oil and gas facilities, civil construction and infrastructure developments, and shipping ports.

The availability of the 26m modular spreader beam for hire in Western Australia from Kennards Hire Lift & Shift makes it easier for work crews and procurement managers to plan lifting projects across mining, shipping, and oil and gas operations.

Gary Ahern from The Lifting Company says Kennards Hire Lift & Shift and The Lifting Company have established a long-term working relationship. Observing that the Kennards Hire Lift & Shift team is extremely professional and helpful, he adds that working in co-operation on projects allows them to draw on each other’s expertise, ensuring their customers receive excellent service and equipment.
