Lift Beam – March 2018

KENC has designed a lift beam with a WLL of 200t for Breman Machinery in Genemuiden. Breman has fabricated the liftbeam for own use. The lift beam will be used in the newbuild manufacturing hall that offers space for Europe’s largest cutter bank, and has overhead cranes with a 320t lifting capacity. The light and compact design of the hoisting beam was possible thanks to detailed buckling calculations. The length of the lift beam is almost 12m, with a self-weight of only 12t. >> Read more

Newsletter Issue 2 – 2016

In the past year KENC has executed a number of major projects for well known customers.

Another project was the development of a system enabling Van Oord to deposit rocks at greater depths. We have also engineered a pile grillage with seafastening for Jumbo Offshore, and for Boskalis we have made adjustments to a lifting hook for the Taklift4.
