Equipment fit for a Viking

Irlequip has supplied a 50-tonne capacity Grove GMK3050 mobile crane and equipment from Modulift to lift handcrafted boats in Wicklow, Ireland.

Weighing up to 5 tonnes, the ships form part of the set for the History Channel’s drama series Vikings.

A CMOD 24 modular frame, featuring a maximum span of 5 m x 4 m, is being used beneath the hook of the crane and is capable of lifting all vessel types on set.

Damien Maher, capital equipment sales at Irlequip, explained that the frame is able to not only lift but also cradle the boats, which prevents any inward pressure or stress.
