Why you should choose for a Lifting Beam in this case
Our client, an offshore windfarm foundation installation expert, was looking for a way to lift long mono piles with the limited available lifting height. The previously used method, a spreader beam with top rigging to the crane hook resulted in a shortage of lifting height. The solution was found in the use of a lifting beam type design (bending beam) with the crane hook fully integrated into the beam, resulting in an optimal lifting height set up.

Lifting beams load test
To be able to load test the spreader beam, the beam design was such that the spreader beam could be load tested in two independent load tests, making it possible to use existing load testing facilities instead of building a costly test set up. Reducing the cost of a load test, or making a proper load test possible anyway is an important boundary condition in the design of special below-the-hook lifting equipment.

Eager.one designed this special SWL 1200 t x 6.5 m lifting beam with integrated hook connection which was easy to load test in an existing load test facility.
With this optimized design our costumer was able to lift the required MP lengths while the lift equipment was build, load tested 3rd party certified at minimal cost.
