Delivery of a lifting and lowering system SWL 124 t

We are pleased to announce the successful delivery of an SWL 124 t lifting and lowering system for the new TS ARCHIMEDES building as the first news item on our new website.

The TS ARCHIMEDES will replace the TGS CARL STRAAT, which is now almost 60 years old, and will carry out work on locks and river beds.

Design, manufacture and commissioning of the system were carried out by our company.

The mast in the form of an A gallows was a challenging feature of this project. Here it was necessary to make it possible for the mast with the permanently attached load, a diving bell with a weight of approx. 109 t (!)), to be designed to be foldable To enable bridge passages and thus to significantly expand the operational radius of the ship compared to its predecessor. Of course, under strict specifications for your own system weight.

The system has a high degree of automation and was designed and manufactured taking into account the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EG including further standards.
