Less than two weeks remain before the start of the sixth Crane Safety conference at London's Grange City hotel on 4-5 June. A late presentation is an exploration of the use of overhead cranes to dismantle the Chernobyl, Ukraine nuclear power station.
Under this year's theme of power and energy, other speakers include Havator president Erkki Hanhirova about the huge Norwegian Snow White project, Bechtel rigging manager Keith Anderson, UK power generation firm RWE npower safety manager Mike Rock, Mammoet safety manager Bryan Cronie, and others.
Additional presentations include a workshop led by wire rope designer Roland Verreet, and workshops on safety management and hook and condition monitoring.
A factory crane session will include a discussion of anti-sway controls from Kimmo Hytönen of Innocrane, a report of British Nuclear Group Sellafield's overhead crane buying requirements, and more.
