Hess opts for Enerpac gantry

Germany-based Hess has invested in an Enerpac SL380 gantry system, as well as two 8 m header beams and side shift units.

According to Enerpac, the SL380 telescopic hydraulic gantry offers the highest lifting capacity on a 61 cm track gauge. It is equipped with three-stage lifting cylinders for loads up to 3,800 kN utilising four legs.

The SL380 has self-contained hydraulics, electronic controls and an Intellilift wireless control system.

The wireless system ensures each lifting cylinder is synchronised during lifting. It also controls the powered side shift units, allowing the gantry to move suspended loads from side to side. The system also allows the user to view the lifting operation remotely.

"The Enerpac SL380 is our first gantry system and an important addition to our range of lifting equipment," says Joachim Hess, director at Hess.

"The hydraulic gantry will allow us to take on larger in-plant projects and has already proved its worth on the first project."

Düsseldorf-based Hess offers a range of services to support the relocation and installation of machines and plant, including heavy transport operations and project logistics services.
