Heavy Lifting

Heavy Lifting Services

Construction of intricate industrial structures like chimneys, tanks, and silos often requires lifting substantial steel elements, including flue liners and internal steel floors. These elements, given their immense weight and the precision required in their placement, pose significant challenges in terms of equipment capability, safety, and expertise.

Harnessing decades of experience and specialised equipment, BEC stands at the forefront of heavy lifting operations.  Our heavy-lifting equipment plays a pivotal role in chimney, tank and silo construction. Whether it’s roofs, internal steel floors, or steel liners, our hydraulically actuated heavy lift system can handle it.

Our team has successfully completed many heavy-lifting operations across Asia. Notably, the lifting of three 310-ton A36 steel liners, which were lined with Borosilicate glass blocks, from the top of a 200-meter-high chimney in Malaysia.
