51t Generator Installed By Denby Transport Limited with Enerpac SCJ-50 Cube Jacks – Video

Lincoln-based, Denby Transport Limited, Special Projects division, has completed the installation of a 51 ton generator using Enerpac SCJ-50 cube jacks, as part of a UK power generation infrastructure project. Replacing traditional wooden cribbing with the cube jacks allowed a quicker and safer generator installation.

Transported to the generator building on a Denby Transport flatbed trailer, the 5m long generator resting on header beams was raised off the trailer using four SCJ-50 cube jacks and lowered onto static load holders. The cube jacks were re-positioned, on 0.5m high static load holders to complete the lift to 2.35m, allowing the generator to be skidded into its final resting position.

For Denby Transport director of special project, George Elliott, the company’s new SCJ-50 cube jack with its small footprint is ideal for confined spaces. “It’s also easy to use, provides a stable lift and allows two man lifts where previously we’d have needed 3 or 4 people using conventional jacks which would have taken a lot longer.”

The Enerpac SCJ-50 Cube Jack can lift 50 ton up to a height of 2m. It uses a base lifting frame and self-aligning, lightweight steel cribbing blocks to provide high-capacity and stabilised lifting. The incremental system mechanically locks the load as each cribbing block is manually added or removed, instead of being held by hydraulic pressure. Once the mechanical lock engages, the lift cylinder retracts, and another cribbing block can be added or removed.
