Company Profile: Birmingham based waste management specialists

Project Details

As principal contractor on behalf of our client it was necessary for us to carry out all electrical disconnections and mechanical dismantling of the equipment.  This would then allow us to uplift the machinery.

Depending on the type machinery, Merritts used a number of lifting solutions. These included a Versa-Lift forklift truck, Hiab crane lorry and 7Te forklift truck. All machinery was loaded to Merritts transport, secured and sheeted. The items were then delivered to their new location.

Items were offloaded from Merritts trailers and transported into the new facility. The machinery was positioned, bolted to the floor, electrically and mechanically reassembled and aligned and levelled.

All redundant equipment was removed and disposed of safely at an appropriate facility.
