Over the years, our team of rigging, engineering, and transportation specialists have become well known for their ability to take on very large, complex projects involving extraordinarily sensitive—and often unusually heavy—equipment. Medical centers and equipment manufacturers around the country frequently contract us to move and install equipment such as the S250 Proton Therapy System we recently moved for Mevion Medical Systems.
In this project—photos of which are in the gallery below—we had to utilize Gantry cranes to load the equipment, which weighed a staggering 106,000 lbs., onto a remote controlled platform trailer (admittedly, one of the most fun pieces of equipment in our arsenal). Once on the trailer, we carefully moved the unit under a building…just to get it to the lifting area where the crane was setup! From there, we utilized a 500T crane to lift this massive load up into the suite in which it was to be installed. This, while keeping two way traffic moving in a single lane road in one of the busiest cities in the country! We had no choice but to work during every possible moment; the entire move needed to be complete within 72 hours, leaving no room for delay or error.
Does your company need to move equipment that seems impossibly large or sensitive? Perhaps the logistics of the move just seem impossible? Click HERE to get in touch with a member of our team today to see how we can make the impossible happen for you!
