Stewart Construction was seeking to appoint a Machinery Moving specialist company to support the rigging, lifting and positioning of a Generator Set weighing 8120kgs (EGW) and associated elements from one location to another on the access road on the east side of the Beaumont Hospital Campus.


The project involved instrumental planning, project management and a professional moving service from a dedicated team of Cronin Movers Machinery Movers specialists, reporting into Stewart Construction project manager James Cronin.

The project required moving the generator set onsite using a space saver forklift with 1.8m long blades and 80t mobile crane. The Generator Set required rigging, slinging and lifting by crane and loading to a flatbed truck before being transported to its new location. The reverse process was used by rigging, slinging and lifting using the crane from the flat-bed truck to the ground. We positioned our machine moving skates and used a Space Saver Forklift to manoeuvre the generator set into new position as directed and agreed with the Stewart Construction supervising site engineer.


The project to move the generator set was a complete success and the client was extremely happy with the level of service and expertise provided by the Cronin Movers team.
