A previously used double girder electric overhead travelling crane was modified, overheauled, delivered & installed for our Orkney based client, Scotrenewables Tidal Power Ltd, to assist with the outfitting of their unique Tidal Turbine click here for details.
Special measures had to be taken to coordinate the transportation of the crane components, plant & materials to site due to the remote location. At Harold Potter Ltd, we relish the thought of a challenge and stepped up to the mark to deliver the crane on time and precisely to the client's specification.
The crane (pictured below) is a 10 tonne Safe Working Load Demag overhead travelling crane with a span of 10mtr, 5mtr Height of Lift and has a 12mtr length free standing gantry. The cross travel motors were fitted with inverter drives to allow for precise positioning of the hook for delicate operations.
A previously used 25 tonne S.W.L. twin girder Demag overhead travelling crane was overhauled, supplied & installed for our Nottingham based client to accommodate their expansion requirements.
The crane bridge length was modified to suit the existing gantry then cleaned and painted. The cross travel electrics were replaced for new equipment as is the standard of all our previously used cranes. All long travel and cross travel motors including the wire rope hoist were serviced and underwent a Report of Thorough Examination before leaving our workshop. A new control panel was made by our electricians to incorporate inverter driven cross and long travel motions for soft start and stop to allow for precision handling of loads. A radio remote control system was fitted to the crane to enable safe operation of the crane from any location within the facility. Due to the size of the crane and restrictions within the facility, a mobile crane was required to lift the overhead crane into position - this was done by temporarily removing panels from the roof.
Five brand new aluminium overbraced swing jib cranes were supplied, installed, load tested and certified in accordance with LOLER for our client within 2 weeks from order due to urgent requirements following the relocation of their production facility. Each jib crane has a Safe Working Load of 500kg and stands at 4.2 metres high with a 4 metre manual slew radius arm and has a dual speed Black Bear electric chain hoist.
