Pfaff-silberblau screw jacks and drives for bridge construction

Last year saw the start of a major construction project in Kazakhstan designed to establish the ferry terminal in Kuryk on the shores of the Caspian Sea as the hub for the transhipment-free transportation of goods to Europe. Columbus McKinnon Engineered Products, working closely on this construction site with the local company in St. Petersburg/Russia, is now fitting the two giant loading bridges out each with 24 Pfaff-silberblau special screw jacks SHE 150.1 in addition to 48 special gear motors and, in doing so, is creating the technical basis that will allow entire freight trains to quickly drive in and out of the ferries before the end of the year.

Efficient Automated Cranes Maximize Boat Storage

An automated dry dock boat storage system utilizing an overhead bridge crane. The facility accommodates 125 boats up to 52 feet in length. The automated crane eliminates the need for fork trucks to store and retrieve boats. While fork trucks emit soot and grease which gets on the boats and can damage the hulls, the automated bridge crane operates quietly and cleanly, which is good for the residential community in which it resides.
