Fortune Global Completes on Another Ground-Breaking Heavy Lift Operation
What Is Heavy Lift Operation?
A heavy lift operation refers to the process of lifting and moving large and/or heavy objects or structures using specialized equipment and machinery. These operations may include moving heavy equipment, large pieces of machinery, or even entire buildings.
The heavy lift operation involves careful planning and execution to ensure safety, efficiency, and the prevention of damage to the objects being lifted as well as the surrounding environment. This may involve the use of cranes, hoists, specialized lifting equipment, and skilled operators and riggers.
Heavy lift operations can be found in a variety of industries, including construction, manufacturing, transportation, and energy production. These operations are typically carried out by experienced and qualified professionals with specialized training and certifications in the field of heavy lifting.
Processes Involved In Heavy Lift Operations Include:
- Planning: The first step in a heavy lift operation is to plan the lift, considering the weight and dimensions of the load, the available equipment, and the site conditions.
- Rigging: Rigging involves attaching the load to the lifting equipment using chains, slings, shackles, and other hardware.
- Lifting: Lifting the load is carried out using specialized equipment such as heavy-duty cranes, gantries, or jacks.
- Transport: After lifting the load, it may need to be transported to its final destination. This may involve using heavy-duty trailers or transporters.
