Alternative Rigging Systems

In those cases were cranes are unusable, unavailable or extemely expensive we can use our in-house developed alternative rigging system. We construct a gantry crane on top of an existing construction like a drilling rig, which consists of lightweight gantries, mast parts and winches. The crane is composed of ‘trusses’, which are aluminium pieces up to 25 kg. Similar frames are used for lighting and cameras during pop concerts. The low weight of these parts means that the rigging system can be constructed by hand. However, even though it is light weight, this system still enables us to hoist weights up to 15 tonnes.
