This 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.
There 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.
A requirement to lift the pumps out of the wells and over a guardrail was a challenge that had to be addressed. Each position around the plant was carefully documented and considered. After consultation with the client, it was suggested one davit could fulfill a number of the required lifts.
