Global Hire can offer its clients a service to design lifting configurations to suit their particular requirements. This service can incorporate fully engineered lifting components including drawings, any attendant approvals that may be required, liaising with clients or their representatives, supply of any gear, through to any necessary labour to assemble the required equipment and even to complete the lift.
This capability is available as a result of the many and varied skills associated with the personnel of Global Hire, these include engineers, riggers and crane drivers together with years of operational involvement with the maritime and transport industries.
Examples of unusual lifting systems that were purpose designed and built by Global Hire are illustrated below. In the first the vessel hull material was too light to use normal lifting procedures such as webbing slings. As such we had to come up with a method that guaranteed the integrity of the vessel being lifted as well as meet the headroom.
