Lhoist Silo Lift
GW Systems recently placed the first of 12 large silos in its Plant Modernization project located in the southeastern US. The 12 silos, located in an existing lime plant, will store the plants finished product and make it ready for load-out. The first 51 ft tall silo weighing 87,000 lbs. was safely lifted over 60 feet high and set in its final resting place in under 20 minutes. This efficient and successful lift required the careful co-ordination and team effort of all involved. Here is a quick look at the lift.
