Stevedoring specialist Patrick hired a 145 tonne spreader beam and two 80 tonne round slings from Kennards Hire Lift & Shift to lift a large 75ft Riviera motor yacht onto a container ship.

According to Operations Manager Jayn Sharrock, they handle containers for their customers every day; however, occasionally they are also required to lift other items such as boats typically weighing 15-30 tonne, which are well within their boat beam capacity. However, the Riviera motor yacht weighed approximately 67 tonne requiring Patrick to hire the necessary equipment from Kennards Hire Lift & Shift.

The spreader beam hired from Kennards Hire Lift & Shift has a maximum load of 145 tonne at 60° up to 13.5 metres and is capable of lifting a 76 tonne load at 60° and 20 metres in length. Kennards Hire Lift & Shift also offers torque wrenches for hire to ensure the bolts on the beam are correctly fastened.

Kennards Hire Lift & Shift supplies an extensive range of both lifting and spreader beams for hire across Australia to suit the needs of projects in mining and oil and gas sectors as well as major civil construction and infrastructure developments and shipping ports. The beams vary from 250kg to 300 tonne, with the 300 tonne beam having a maximum width of 26 metres and a unit weight of 6,600kg when fully assembled, excluding shackles or rigging gear.
