Although there are many examples of a ‘heavy lift’ a prime example is the installation of a large industrial generator onto the rooftop of a commercial building. The task involves specialized machinery or lifting equipment to hoist the generator, which can weigh several tons, to a significant height and then precisely position it on the rooftop. This requires careful planning, coordination and the expertise of experienced heavy lift operators to ensure the safe and accurate placement of the heavy equipment.
