We have recently unloaded segments for a new 40 meter diameter carousel for one of our customers. A total of thirty segments, each 15m long by 3.5m wide and weighing 10 tonnes are to be unloaded from trucks arriving from Sweden each with two segments fortnightly apart. The work involves rigging and slinging of each section and then piggy backing the trailers for their return trip to Sweden. Full lift plans, method statements and risk assessments were put in place to allow the work to be timeously completed to each timetabled delivery schedule.
The foundation of the new carousel has been constructed and installation work is due to commence in October when we hope to assist with completing the work with the supplier and the end client.
