SC&RA Best Job of the Year 2015
Internal haulage and plate mill housings lifting by hydraulic gantries.
The erection and installation of the plate mill components won the Best Job of the Year 2015 from SC&RA - Specialized Carries & Rigging Association, an international association of nearly 1,300 member companies from 46 nations. The Job of the Year competition is held by the association ever year and it gathers top leading companies from around the world. Transdata is the first company in South America winner of the award.
Transdata had already performed the road transport of the cargo, considered to be the largest interstate overland haulage of the country. In continuation of supporting the expansion project of one of the largest specialty long steel manufacturers in the world, Transdata carried on the internal movement and lifting of the plate mill housings through an innovative engineering plan.
The pieces were placed in their bases through an engineering operation by hydraulic gantries. An innovative solution focused on safe execution and cost / installation time reduction. It is the first time worldwide that this procedure was adopted for lifting plate mill housings with similar characteristics.
The plate mill housings delivered are the largest components of a rolling mill equipment installed in Brazil.
