Crane, powered access and glass lifting specialist Hird is providing a range of lifting expertise at a biomass plant in East Yorkshire.
Contractors working at the wood chip and biomass waste burning power station have been using Hird’s Grove GMK 4100L mobile crane to carry out a series of lifts at the site.
Company Managing Director Phil Hird said: “We’re very pleased to be supporting the development of renewable energy for the domestic and industrial customers in East Yorkshire
“Our involvement demonstrates our ability to assist clients carrying out complex construction and maintenance tasks with a comprehensive lifting service.”
The Grove GMK 4001L mobile crane has been used to carry out a number of tasks, including lifting an engineering team to inspect the main flue stack.
It has also been used to lift into place a support structure, and then a start-up silencer which was installed on the structure. The crane’s reach was needed to lift over already-installed plant.
Hird’s Grove GMK 4001L mobile crane has a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tonnes and all-terrain capability, making it ideal for working on construction sites
The client was also supplied with a Genie Z80/60 diesel articulated boom, which has a maximum working height of 25.77 metres, and an impressive outreach of 18.29m
The machine also has Genie’s Fast Mast controls, allowing rapid raising and lowering of the boom to maximise productivity, and rough terrain capability.
Hird provided a Genie Z30/20 NRJ electric boom, which allows an operative to work at height up to 10.89 metres. It’s narrow width, just 1180mm, makes it ideal for working in confined spaces
The client is also selected two Genie 1932 electric scissor lifts from the Hird powered access hire fleet. They allow working at heights up to 7.8 metres, have a lifting capacity of 227kg, yet are narrow enough (800mm) to pass through standard single doorways.
Hird also has a wide range of pick and carry cranes and tracked spider cranes in its mini crane hire fleet. Phil Hird said: “We’re the one-stop shop for lifting, both in terms of equipment and expertise.
Lifting services, including contract lifting and machinery moving, are delivered nationally via three operational hubs. For more information, call Hird today.
