South American Heavy Lift Contractor, Tecnogruas, With Their Enerpac SBL500
Leading Americas heavy lift contractor, Tecnogruas, has used an Enerpac SBL500 hydraulic gantry to lift a mobile concrete batching plant for transport from Santiago to a new project in the north of Chile.
The Liebherr Mobilmix 2.25 mobile horizontal mixing plant when assembled comprises aggregate hoppers and cement silos on their own steel foundations. The plant weighs approximately 50t and is 17m long by 3.2m wide and 3m high. The length of the mobile plant’s carrying frame made careful planning essential. Positioning the Enerpac SBL500 gantry close to each end of the frame ensured it remained level throughput the fully synchronised lift onto a flatbed trailer.
“This was a relatively simple but nonetheless delicate lifting project, due to the dimensions of the concrete plant. Our Enerpac SBL500 gantry is the perfect equipment to perform this type of project, guaranteeing a stable and safe lift. A team of four people completed the project in two days, including assembly, lifting and disassembly,” commented Franyel Moreno – Tecnogruas project supervisor.
The Enerpac SBL500 has a maximum lifting capacity of 500t in the first stage and has a third stage maximum height of 8.6m. It features a fixed boom, steel wheels for traveling and uses the Intelli-lift wireless control system for synchronized movement, increased operator safety and control.
