We were recently asked by a client of ours to assist with some on site lifting of some Generators inside 6 x 40’HC containers that were being imported into the UK.

The plan was to place a 55 Tonne all terrain crane at the clients premises, then stagger the container deliveries over a 2 day period allowing enough time to drop the units to the floor to remove the Generators.

An inspection of the site was made, we then raised a Method Statement and Risk Assessment of the procedure we were planning to carry out.

Our appointed person from IFE took care of the shackling and attaching of chains to the containers allowing the crane to position the containers where they were needed on site.

We are pleased to confirm all went according to plan and we even finished up on day 2 earlier than expected.

Some pictures of this lift are below.

“Every now and then, we come across something quite special with all the different types of commodities we import each year!
We were asked to import into the UK, 11 old Locomotives, originally used to work the sugar cane plantations nearly 100 years ago serving the Ryam Sugar Refinary in Bihar State, India. The locomotives were imported by a collector based in the Midlands. Some are to be restored to their original glory, a far cry from their rusting graveyard, others sold on to other collectors in the UK. The final Locomotives are due to arrive into the UK within the next few weeks.”
