Hye weighs in with Straightpoint

Lifting Gear Hire (LGH) has supplied four Straightpoint compression load cells to weigh a bridge structure during a repair operation in Belgium. 

The bridge section had been removed for repair after a canal boat collision. The 150-tonne capacity load cells were used by marine engineering company Hye, which was tasked with fixing the structure that crosses the Brussels-Scheldt sea canal at Humbeek-Sas in Grimbergen.

The wireless load cells were positioned under four supporting points of the structure and fed data back to Straightpoint’s SW-HHP software on a laptop, where they were analysed at a safe distance.

The net weight of the bridge was 156.5 tonnes. Including a number of components that will be required during re-installation, the structure weighed 162.5 tonnes.
