BIGLIFT & HUISMAN
ARAMID PENDANTS FOR THE HAPPY SKY
On and offshore
Today’s crane business focuses on heavy lifts at increasing reach and heights. Lifting offshore structures, power plant jobs, nuclear work, infrastructure projects, and windmill erection calls for cranes that reach increasing heights. But with these increasing heights and subsequently increasing boom lengths also weight increases.
Renewable Energy sources are more and more sought after. In a drive to reduce the carbon footprint of energy production, governments and utility companies have been spending time, effort and lots of money toward the development of ‘green’ energy sources. An additional reason for developing alternative sources of energy is political. Countries depending on energy imports seek independence from countries that sell their natural resources for financial gain and political influence.
Surface mining is considered an extremely harsh and demanding environment. Surface mining relies strongly on the availability and effectiveness of critical assets, such as draglines and rope shovels. Depending on the size of the equipment and the type of material being mined, the hourly loss of revenue resulting from inefficient operations, failure, or unplanned maintenance is considerable.
