Viking Ship Lift Uses Modulift

September 18, 2007

Modulift, a modular spreader system has been utilized by Meade Crane Services Ltd. to assist in the transportation of the replica Viking ship, the Sea Stallion of Glendalough, to the National Museum at Collins Barracks in Dublin. Due to restricted access to the Museum, the operation involved lifting the 10-ton Viking ship over the top of the museums buildings, with the help of two Modulift spreaders.

After setting sail from its home in Denmark, the Sea Stallion arrived in Dublin Docks, where Meade Crane Services Ltd. managed the logistics of several complex lifts to safely lift the vessel from the water and transport it to the Museum, where it will be on display until next summer. Modulift Design & Consulting, manufacturers of Modulift, supplied two Modulift 70 spreaders to assist with the operation. As part of the company's heavy range, the Modulift 70 has been specifically designed for applications such as lifting heavy boat and plant and machinery handling.
