Modulift Spreaders Part of Heavy-Lift Test

Oct. 21, 2022 - Modulift, a leading manufacturer of modular spreader beams, was recently involved in an exceptionally heavy load test in Dubai.

Two MOD 1000 spreader beams were used in crucifix configuration, each lifting 1,089 USt (990 metric tons). The remaining load was supported directly by the crane hook.

The project was a collaboration of several specialist equipment suppliers across the world, with 660-USt and 550-USt P-6043 Green Pin shackles provided by Royal Van Beest; wireless load links, load pin shackles, and T24 electronics from Load Monitoring Systems; and 121-USt and 55-USt waterbags, cable laid grommets and round slings manufactured by Liftek International.

Sarah Spivey, managing director at Modulift, said: “It’s encouraging to see our beams being used as part of such a demanding project, a real testament to the quality of our products.”

Spivey added that the MOD 1000 is ideal for this type of lift due to its relatively low weight. “Our spreader beams are specially designed to provide a lightweight solution so that cranes can work at maximum capacity,” she said.

All Modulift spreader beams comply with ASME, BS, and DNV standards. Capacities range from 6.6 to 3,300 USt, and can be reused anywhere in the world without retesting or recertifying, even when dismantled and reconfigured.
