Ship Building & Repair

Repair work performed on shipboard cranes is frequently inspected by proof load testing the crane prior to reinstating it to service.  This work is often performed on tight turn around schedules, with no margin for delays due to faulty proof load equipment.  For this reason, Hydro-Wates® maintains an extensive inventory of its own water bags, load cells, rigging and pumps.  All of this equipment is maintained by our own personnel.

Manufacturing

Load testing manufacturing plant cranes is frequently performed following initial installation or after repairs have been made to critical components.  This work often requires work stoppage in your plant, so getting the load test performed quickly and correctly is critical.  For this reason, Hydro-Wates® maintains an extensive inventory of its own water bags, load cells, rigging and pumps.  All of this equipment is serviced and maintained by our own staff.
