Cranes and Rigging
he group works very closely with approved Sub-contractors in supplying cranes. We represent the B.D Sarens Group who is specialist in handling of Heavy Goods both in Cranes and Heavy Transport "Operating Worldwide Nothing is too Heavy" with Rigging Services forming part of the services.
B.D Sarens is a leading provider of integrated lifting and transport logistics services in Southern Africa. Backed by more than 25 years experience in the industry, state-of-the-art equipment and a team of professional engineers. We specialise in finding solutions to lift and move technically difficult loads, safely and cost effectively.
The Group supplies lifting equipment for projects ranging from 1 ton to 2000 tons. The company owns a fleet of modern cranes that are serviced regularly and maintained beyond statutory requirements. Cranes and rigs are also sourced from trusted local and international suppliers when necessary.
Our crane operators are well trained and are tested and certified on a regular basis. In addition, crane operators and back-up vehicles are equipped with cell phones to ensure that ongoing contact is maintained with the operations desk while projects are being carried out.
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. If required, the construction of crane bases or access roads necessary to conduct and complete the project is undertaken. Where access is restricted, we rig loads weighing in excess of 100 tons into position.
