AG Cranes Limited, based in Warwickshire have recently received an order to install 18 pillar jib cranes at a major oil and gas company based in Lancashire.
In addition to supplying the new Donati jib cranes the client asked them to remove four 2t SWL swing jib cranes from his old workshop. AG Cranes then transported, installed and tested all 22 jibs.
Each pillar jib crane had a safe working load of 2 tonnes and was fitted with a new Demag Electric Chain Hoist. The floor depth wasn’t the deepest so the client requested we install a jib crane counter plate onto the base of the jib cranes to spread the load. This meant all of the cranes passed the 125% proof load test with ease.
The Donati UK Sales director Jim Bristow said “this was the largest swing jib crane order we have ever received in the UK, well done AG Cranes.”
