Red Bank, NJ, United States, 2008/09/09 - R. Baker and Son All Industrial Services recently completed the rigging and rough setting of a 4,000 lb backup generator. The project was completed safely, on schedule and without incident or injury.
R. Baker and Son All Industrial Services, an expert rigging, machinery moving and equipment relocation contractor recently completed the rigging and rough setting of a 4,000 lb backup generator for a private client in New Jersey.
R. Baker & Son All Industrial Services (R. Baker & Son) was contracted by a private client to offload, rig and set a 4,000 lb generator onto a concrete pad. The client contracted R. Baker & Son to perform the work due to their impeccable safety record (EMR 0.79), professionalism and cost effectiveness.
Prior to the commencement of work, R. Baker & Son conducted several evaluations and the development of a critical lift plan. An evaluation of the area where the crane and equipment would be placed was conducted to ascertain ground stability and the potential for underground utilities. The weight of the generator was also considered to determine proper selection of necessary slings and associated rigging equipment. Based on the weight of the generator and the calculation of height and radius from center pin of crane to desired placement of generator, R. Baker & Son determined that the appropriate sized crane needed to be a 50 ton hydraulic crane.
The work began by coordinating the delivery of the generator to the site with the mobilization of the crane and rigging crew. The project needed to be completed in one day so timing was crucial.
R. Baker & Son mobilized a three (3) man expert rigging crew along with a 50 ton hydraulic crane to the site. In addition, ancillary rigging equipment (shackles, nylon straps, etc.) and safety equipment (fire extinguishers, safety kit, etc.) were also delivered to the site.
The flat bed truck delivering the generator and the rigging crew along with crane were expertly coordinated to the site and all arrived on time in the morning. The generator was then carefully lifted from the flatbed and then carefully placed onto the concrete pad. The generator was rough set.
The project was completed within the 1 day timeframe set by the client. The project was incident and accident free. For more information on R. Baker & Son’s capabilities and projects completed, please visit our website.
