Structures Employed in the Heavy Lifting Industry - a Review of Some Recent Projects and Developments

The heavy lifting industry has recently been required to develop extra capabilities to deal with the ever-increasing sizes of vessels and structures being fabricated for the petrochemical, energy, and construction industries. The complexity of lifting operations has also required a greater emphasis on the control and accuracy with which lifting is carried out. This paper describes some recent projects that have been successfully completed using developments devised to meet these increasing requirements. David J. Rolton
