Personnel Restraint solution for Northern Ireland Water

REID Lifting, the leading portable lifting solution designer and manufacturer, has continued its long-standing service to the water industry with the customisation and supply of over 80 portable lifting jib cranes for Northern Ireland Water, within tight deadlines.

Working in partnership with BPF Distributors and Pumps Ltd, REID was able to assess the technical brief and ensure that its industry-standard PORTA-DAVIT 500 WLL 500kg could be customised to meet the required safety, lifting and access requirements.

Easy to transport and stow, with rapid assembly, the PORTA-DAVIT WLL 500kg was adapted for Northern Ireland Water’s ‘Investment Programme’ to facilitate a requirement for a ‘Personnel Restraint Anchor Point’, with the manufacture and supply of over 80 units (plus electric hoists and waterproof covers) within just a few weeks.
The PORTA-DAVIT 500kg is long-established as a popular choice within the water and wastewater industry, providing a safe and lightweight solution to lifting, for example, pumps within potentially hazardous conditions. REID is proud of its ability – as design and manufacture specialists – to respond quickly to customer needs with suitably customised equipment.

Customisation is at the core of REID’s product offering, and personnel lifting options can be integrated into any of its lifting solutions providing additional safety for users in potentially dangerous operating environments.
Phillip Ellis, REID’s Sales and Marketing Director comments: “We are really pleased to further develop our relationship with NI Water through a close relationship with our partners, BPF. The water industry is a key sector for REID with many of our products specifically developed for such applications. I’m delighted to say that we shipped all 80 PORTA-DAVIT WLL 500kg systems within the requested timescales.”
