Case Study

Davit Cranes

Geo Thermal Power Station Wairakei – Davit Crane

The RequirementThis new Geo Thermal Power Station had many on-site applications where pumps and motors were required to be lifted out of well situations for regular checking and servicing. A simple one man lifting device was required for this procedure, that could be simply transported from point to point around the large site.

The ChallengeThere are several standards ‘off the shelf’ davits that could be used in this application. Points that required to be ascertained was the weight of each load, the height of the lift required and the reach of the beam.

Solution to a long-standing challenge

As a solution to a long standing challenge, Cabtec Ltd purchased a Fezer vacuum lifter from Stratalign Limited, for processing product through a processing line. Prior to the purchase, the process had required manual handling, which in today’s environment, is not a sustainable option.

More than one option for this solution was investigated by Cabtec with the decision being a vacuum lifter as the winning choice. Cabtec’s spokesman recalls, “Cabtec selected Stratalign as the winning supplier, based on their ability to provide the technical and professional advice, along with what Cabec considered a ‘top quality product for a competitive price’.

The ‘ease of operation’ is facilitated by the very smooth running bearings and movement points, integral to this structurally sound piece of kit.” He continues, “From the day the order was placed, the Stratalign team kept us updated with progress, to the day the machine was installed.

The installation process was organized in such a way, by Stratalign, that it caused absolute minimal disruption to a very busy working environment during normal working hours.”
