Pirate ship hanging on Evers GmbH's ropes

CentrO. issued an order to Evers GmbH for the sling tackle for transporting the pirate ship

By chance, during a visit to the large CentrO construction site, Johannes Trum, managing director of the "packaging artist" Evers GmbH based in Oberhausen-Buschhausen, heard about the transport of the pirate ship from the "dry dock" in front of the CentrO exhibition pavilion into the lagoon in front of the CentrO-Park pirate island planned for 01 September 1996. The largest load heavy lift helicopter in the world will fly the 22.75 metre long, 5.80 metre wide and 18 tonne heavy ship to the leisure park where it will be used as an interesting play area for children.

At this time the choice of suitable lifting technique was still a problem. Johannes Trum was spontaneously able to help, by offering to provide slings and special lifting beams for this unusual transport, under the supervision of Evers' expert Christoph Bergforth. Evers GmbH is the longstanding factory representative of SpanSet GmbH & Co.KG in Übach-Palenberg, the European market leader in the textile hoisting and lashing sector. The two companies immediately identified the special problem in this case. Together with the Turkish shipbuilder, a special lifting construction was designed for which CentrO. issued an order to Evers GmbH and which will safely carry the pirate ship to its intended destination.

The sling system consists of four-piece, flexible polyester webbing, onto which the lashing is sewn, with the help of which the precise, predetermined position of the four harnesses are adjusted, slip-free, on the ship. The four harnesses are tied together on SpanSet-Secutex lifting beams, which are in turn hung into the carrying element of the helicopter. The special feature: The complete load-bearing construction weighs only 390 kg, but could carry 40,000 kg.

Among other things, SpanSet slings and round slings were used to lift the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Denkmal monument in Koblenz (71 to) and the Quadriga in Berlin (7.5 to) to their accustomed places. These are only two examples of the diverse application possibilities of the technically highly developed SpanSet products. SpanSet slings are, however, mainly used worldwide in the industrial sector. Load movements with up to 200,000 kg capacity are not rare.
