Introducing Modulift's New Product, The TriMOD

Modulift, a technical expert and manufacturer in the lifting industry based in the UK, have added a new product to its portfolio which is specifically designed for 3-point lifts and suitable for circular lifts.

The TriMOD, designed by their in-house engineering team and manufactured in their established factory in Poole, Dorset is a triangular frame, designed for 3-point lifts. The frame can be extended for 6-point lifts and multipoint circular lifts due to the unique shape. All TriMOD corner units are compatiable with Modulift spreader beams to achieve multiple spans.

The efficient design makes the rigging configuration simpler, easy to assemble and cost effective. Due to the shape, it can be used for circular lifts, in particular when lifting tank roofs and pressure vessels, avoiding uneccessary cascading rigs.

John Baker, Commercial Director said, “We are continually looking for new ideas and developing new products. We recently attended Vertikal Days in Peterborough and brought a TriMOD demo along with us. The feedback we received was phenomenal, everybody loves the product

Liftal Acquires Damen Hoisting

The agreement was effected on 1 October and the organisation will be incorporated into the full-service specialist in lifting and hoisting technology.

For Liftal this is a strategic expansion in the Rotterdam region, for Damen a choice to stay with its core business.

Damen Hoisting was established five years ago as a business unit of Damen Anchor & Chain Factory B.V., located on the premises of Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam in Schiedam. The hoisting division serves customers from various markets such as the maritime, offshore, industrial and civil engineering industries. Specialist services and activities are carried out in the field of lifting and hoisting under the EKH quality mark. Reasons for the sale include market saturation and Damen’s strategic choice to focus more on its core business.

Liftal Hijstechniek has been active in the south-west of the Netherlands

and in various European markets in the field of testing and certification of hoisting and lifting equipment for maritime applications, oil/gas/wind energy sectors, industrial markets and the construction sector since 1998. From its Belgian branch, the company covers the connecting regions in Belgium such as Antwerp, the Terneuzen-Ghent canal zone and port areas on the coast.

Both management boards are happy with the acquisition, Damen Hoisting’s General Manager Perry Rikkers says; “First and foremost, we are pleased because this guarantees the employment of the seven Damen employees of Hoisting. We are fully confident that this acquisition will positively help our customers and that they will continue to receive top service. This is a positive step forward for all involved.”

Hans Hirdes, Manager of Liftal, adds; “Geographically, the takeover of the activities of Damen Hoisting is a nice

addition to Liftal Hijstechniek’s current working area. In addition, given the presence and concentration of shipping, offshore, wind and large industry, the Rotterdam region offers sufficient potential to further expand our activities. Partly in view of the promised support from the Damen Group, we are confident of continuing and further expanding the activities of Damen Hoisting within Liftal Hijstechniek.”

Work already started under existing agreements and contracts will be completed under Damen Hoisting. Work that has not yet started but has already been agreed will be performed by Liftal under the conditions agreed with Damen Hoisting.

and how unique it is. It was good to see everybody again, especially after a testing 18 months for the lifting industry and for us, it was great to come back to our first event with a brand new product.”

Harshal Kulkarni, Engineering Manager for Modulift added, “Our team have wanted to develop a product which would change the lifting industry and in particular, design and manufacture a product which is suitable for complicated circular lifts. We have seen an increase in enquiries over recent months and we’re proud to be able to offer a solution for our customers.”
