LGH in Turkey for a Damen Lift


Last summer, the first plans were made when LGH received a request from Damen to participate in a wonderful project. It concerned the hoisting of a ship and they were asked if they could participate in the rigging of the job. Based on the information they provided, LGH made a proposal to get the job done safely.

In the third week of January 2021 the time had come. Niels van der Breggen was present on behalf of LGH in Antalya, Turkey to act as project supervisor for the rigging equipment to move the gigantic ship from quay to water.

LGH delivered:

  • 2 Spreaders 1x mod 400 of 11.5m and 1x mod 250 of 9m.
  • 4 Grommets of 252T with a working length of 10m
  • 2 Multi Lugs 200T and the necessary shackles.

In combination with the boatlift set from Hebo LGH worked hard for 3 days. Day 1 was all about the construction, day 2 about the lift and day 3 about dismantling the rigging.

The whole operation, with over 20 men, went very smoothly.
