Rigger Force supplies rigging equipment for projects ranging from 1 ton to 500tons. When planning a major lift we establish the equipment requirements, evaluate the costs and prepare detailed lifting studies, such as risk assessments and lifting procedures. Prior to the execution of the project, soil conditions and crane access are investigated.

Jacking & Sliding:

We have electrical hydraulic power packs with a capability to lift up to 2000 tons and diesel hydraulic power packs with a combined lifting capacity of 6000 tons.

Jacking and sliding systems include strong hydraulic jacks, pushing and driving cylinders, rails, and strong skidding tracks. These provide cost-effective lifting and moving solutions for heavy and complex pieces like transformers. For lifting work, various selection of jacks and skid systems are used. The aforementioned are designed to make horizontal movements safe and precise. Jacking and sliding solutions also enable installation in places that are not suitable for crane work.

For situations where conventional handling equipment such as cranes or others cannot be used, Rigger Force provides the most cost effective custom-design solutions with the highest level of work safety.
