CHECKMATE SLINGS LIFT A SUPER YACHT
ONE OF the disciplines we pride ourselves on here at Checkmate is our ability to provide custom solutions to clients. Our can-do attitude is what sets us apart from the rest of the industry, and one of the main reasons clients come back time and time again. Case in point: our lifting division was given a tight deadline to manufacture and deliver webslings capable of lifting a 51-metre-long, 400 tonne Trinity yacht which was to be loaded in Florida to be transported to the Middle East.
The solution was turned around in no time at all. 8 x 26m, 32 tonne and 8 x 24m, 24-tonne quadplex side-by-side polyester webslings were delivered to the customer and designer of the lift, Delphini of Port of Tilbury, who also designed and manufactured the equalising plates, spreaders and cradling system.
