Our Services

1. Capability

Our capabilities include:
  • Lifting Management. By combining skilled, experienced engineers and proven processes, we can review, advise or assist with the management of lifting from the assessment of the current system through to gap analysis and the implementation of corporate standards and operational plans.
  • Lift Plans. For routine and non routine lifts we can carry out risk assessments and prepare from simple generic to highly sophisticated Lift Plans. Includes cranage, sea transport and installation aids.
  • Lifting Register. The LE Team administers a web based Lifting Register that is now used by over 30 clients. It provides an efficient and effective process to underpin the Lifting Management System applied within a company, across companies or on a project.
  • Offshore Lifted Equipment. The LE Team specialises in engineering, manufacture, inspection, testing and maintenance of offshore lifted equipment such as cargo containers, equipment skips and mobile work shops. Currently have over 20 standard designs for lifted equipment ranging from workshops to longstock baskets.
  • Heavy Lifts. Design review of heavy lifts (+500t) and issue of Lift Plans to ensure the lifts are completed in a safe, efficient and effective way.
  • Rigging. The LE Team has extensive expertise in selecting, designing and specifying the correct rigging assembly for the lift. The correct selection of chain, wire rope or soft slinging in conjunction with rigging attachments will help ensure the lift is efficient, cost effective and safe.
  • Verification of Lifted Equipment. The verification over 4,000 individual items of lifted equipment for a broad cross-section of customers in several industries has given WorleyParsons credibility to be the verifier of choice for many lifted equipment owners in Australia and beyond.
