RUD Germany lifted a gigantic lattice cage in downtown Berlin with a length of 25 meters and weight of around 56 tons, which is the largest and heaviest lattice cage ever erected and sunk into the ground.
RUD Australia supplied the hoops and lifting design for the erection of bridge girders in the Pacific Highway Upgrade Project on Exit 41 which was completed by Universal Cranes (part of the Smithbridge Group) along with Georgiou Group.
RUD has been providing innovative material handling solutions to German wind turbine manufacturer Enercon such as the Tecdos Tool Mover which is used to turn heavy rotor-hubs weighing up to 65 ton.

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.
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.
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.
At Eraring Power Station, a fleet of eight Condensate Extraction Pumps (CEPs) were failing more frequently than expected. With every failure, the CEP was offline for a minimum of eight days while being overhauled. The bearing was first disassembled over three days. Then, the pump was removed in two sections while personnel worked under the suspended load to uncouple the pump.
Australia’s hard rock quarries are among the world’s toughest environments for rubber-tyred machines. The West Burleigh Quarry has provided road base and quality aggregates to the Gold Coast area for many years. Uninterrupted supply is essential for many projects in the area.
At the Jundee Nickel Mine, extreme tyre wear and premature tyre failure had become an ongoing problem. Tyre issues were frequent but unpredictable. Replacement tyres were often difficult to source, leaving trucks and machinery out of service for long periods of time.
Defence forces encounter a range of unique materials handling challenges. While serving in the defence forces has inherent dangers, risk is managed seriously and proactively. Reducing the exposure of troops to unnecessary risk is a priority for defence organisations.
The Australian Defence Force has a range of large and heavy vehicles, like the Bushmaster PMV (Protected Mobility Vehicle), in their fleets. The diversity of the vehicles, as well as the unique operating environment of defence force workshops, required a specialist vehicle lifting system.
