Verton signs agreement with Mammoet
Brisbane-based Verton Australia has developed the Everest Series machines for all crane operations with a load-management system that eliminates the need for human held taglines, keeping people out of harm’s way. In an agreement signed with Mammoet, the global heavy lifting and transport specialist will introduce Verton’s innovative equipment to its international network of clients.
Managing director of Verton, Trevor Bourne, said the agreement with Dutch giant Mammoet marks an important step towards raising safety standards in crane operations around the world.
“Verton’s lifting spreader bars are fully equipped to remotely orientate any suitable load using angular momentum stored in our revolutionary gyroscopic modules to precisely rotate loads in either direction,” he said.
“This completely removes the need for taglines or for anyone to be near the landing area of loads, making jobs safer, faster and smarter.
“When an international heavy lifting authority such as Mammoet embraces new safer lifting devices in this way, it shows great trust and understanding of the technology and the importance to reinvent lifting operations.”
Verton offers a flexible range of lifting solutions for critical issues associated with lifting and orienting loads. From its popular Everest 6 spreader bars to custom systems with multiple nested spreader beams, Mammoet’s clients will now have easier access to improved rotational capacity, exact orientation, and exceptional safety for even the largest and most complex loads.
“Verton is proud to be working alongside Mammoet to make lifting operations safer and more efficient,” said Bourne.
“Greater market exposure of our products will result in less risk for workers, which is what we all want.”
Mammoet Global SHE-Q Director, Joery van Vlierden, said, “At Mammoet, our first priority is to ensure that all of our colleagues come home safe each day.
“We constantly seek innovations that will enhance the safety of our operations, and so are happy to use Verton’s load spreading solutions as part of future crane lifting projects.”
