Kiewit Heavy Lift Device
Project: Kiewit Offshore Services, located on the La Quinta Shipping Channel near Corpus Christi, TX, specializes in the fabrication of very large structures for the oil & gas industry, requiring unusually heavy lifts at various stages of assembly. Timberland supplied a system of boom line hoists, load line hoists and reel winders, along with the hydraulic power units and controls to operate all four heavy lift units in synchronized lifts.
Challenge: The heavy lift device required very precise controls to ensure proper synchronization of the hoist operation over lengths of rope exceeding 10,000 ft. (3000 m). As well as meeting the required performance goals, the device also had to meet the challenging safety specifications set by Kiewit.
Success: The heavy lift equipment package met all needs and expectations of the customer. Our success on this system, along with other Kiewit projects, led to Timberland being awarded Kiewit’s Supplier of the Year Award.
