Lifting 14 cable reels, MV Baltic Moon in Wick Harbour



Project overview

Hugh Simpson (Contractors) Ltd. discharged 14 cable reels that were delivered to Wick Harbour.

Our approach

  • Mobile crane wad positioned and set up. The boom was set to the desired lengths.
  • An exclusion area was created with Heras fence set up around the operational area.
  • Laydown area for the reels was identified on the quayside.
  • Lift supervisor carried out toolbox talk with all involved personnel and directed all personnel to their required locations.
  • Banksman guided the cranes over the vessel and slingers on the vessel attached the slings to the cable reel.
  • Once connected the crane drivers  slowly raised the reel and the banksman guided the crane above the laydown area on the quayside.
  • Once secure in position the quayside slingers release the lifting equipment, crane was de- rigged and left site.
