Enerpac BV

The PLC controlled Enerpac Synchronous Lifting system was used by Hydraulic and Pneumatic Pty Ltd of Morwell in conjunction with Plant Performance Group Pty Ltd to enhance precision and safety while monitoring the 2200-ton load’s centre of gravity during the lift on Dredger 16 at Loy Yang Power. The successful lifting and balancing of ist huge superstructure illustrates the versatility of the Synchronous Lift system for major industrial and civil engineering tasks, including manufactured structures, buildings, bridges, oil platforms, ships, turbines, generators, mills, mining equipment and heavy but delicate computerised/electrical equipment.
