Reel Additions

Reel additions.

We have been working with one of our larger customers supplying steelwork to support the end terminations of their products. We had to prefabricate steelwork to form large frames off the existing reels for them to support the terminations that weigh several tonnes. The intension is that the entire reel complete with the new structure will be lifted aboard a ship ready for transportation to the clients facility. The picture shows one of the many delicate lifting operations being carried out lifting one of the side frames into position for securing to the reel side. Each reel is around 11m diameter, and the frames stick out 11m .
