Heavy Duty Hoists for the ADF
The diversity of ADF vehicles, as well as the unique operating environment of defence force workshops, required a specialist vehicle lifting system.
Endurequip Hoists (a wholly owned subsidiary of RUD Australia) was trusted to provide a solution to manage servicing and maintenance requirements.
ICE Grade 120 Chain the lashing solution for safe transportation of rotor blades
A complete lashing system was required for the safe transportation of rotor blades for a new wind farm project.
Each rotor blade was 50 metres long, heavy and oddly shaped,
therebyposing unique securing and lashing challenges.
While working on the Wheatstone Project, lead project rigging engineer, Dusko Barac, proposed an innovative idea. Dusko realised there was an opportunity to increase the operational envelope of the permanent facility bridge cranes to include maintenance works. The reach of the gantry cranes needed to be extended to allow them to pick up components previously out of reach.
Townsville Ring Road Stage 4
This project was the final stage of construction required to complete the Townsville Ring Road link, a 22 km freight bypass of Townsville.
Earthworks, drainage, pavement, retaining walls, concrete barriers, signs and finishing works were also part of the project.
SIMS Metal Recycling Plant
SIMS Metal was constructing a new metal recycling plant in Perth. A high-quality conveyor system was quickly identified as being critical to the plant’s success.
The conveyor system needed to allow a controlled feed to an inclined belt. Metering and controlled flow were also essential features needed in the system.
Our constant pursuit of providing innovative, engineered solutions, coupled with the highest standards in production technology and quality management are benchmarks recognised worldwide.
What Our Clients Say About RUD Australia
