Saetech was contracted by G. O’Brien and Kiernan Structural Steel Ltd. to design a modular lifting beam with adjustable lifting point positions. The lifting beams are designed in sections of 5.1m and 11.5m. The total constructed lifting beam length is 56.2 meters. The couplings consist out of only two long pins, which ensure easy installation.
The couplings are checked and load tested for 250 tm of bending moment, and 110 tonnes of shear force.
Multiple lifting points can be repositioned along the top- and bottom flange for flexible lifting arrangements.
