Successful 880 tonne test

New M&CCE Expo exhibitor Britlift, a leading designer and manufacturer of lifting equipment based in the UK, played an integral part in the recent proof load test of the main deck crane on DP3 Pipelay & Construction vessel Telford 34 in Mexico.

Using a Britlift modular spreader beam, water bags and 700t shackles, the 880 tonne proof load test was carried out by Water Weights. The Telford 34 combines advanced pipelay capability with accommodation for up to 335 people . With DP3, a large unobstructed main deck, a hydraulic heave-compensated telescopic gangway, S-lay pipelay equipment for 4″ to 48″ diameter pipe, a 55m stinger, and, of course, the 800mt crane, she can handle a wide range of projects.

Jim Jota, Marketing Manager Water Weights USA, said “Britlift beams are the lightest modular beams in the market. Being in the rental business, we ship our equipment all throughout our region. The ease of use, assembly, and lightweight construction is much in line with Water Weights’ ethos; safe, efficient, and cost effective in an environment where time is money. The engineering support we received especially during the design phases where we needed the system to be modular, and adaptive to different configurations for various phases of testing made it a simple decision to choose Britlift.”

Specialising in custom-designed and manufactured lifting equipment, including specialist lifting systems, rigging design, lift planning, multi-point lift, low headroom, onshore/offshore, whatever your needs Britlift  can support, design, manufacture, test and supply.
