SafeLifting Europe: a trusted brand
With assets growing in weight and size, much is asked of the lifting and hoisting tools used in the offshore industry. To meet this development, SafeLifting Europe is constantly working on keeping its portfolio of rental equipment up to date.
Offshore professionals use Safe Lifting Europe to source lifting and rigging equipment for short or long-term rental. Being specialised in serving the dynamic and demanding heavy lifting sector, the company works with the lifting industry’s top manufacturers to deliver solutions up to any capacity.
Throughout the years, Safe Lifting has been providing lifting and hoisting equipment to many well-known internationally operating customers. Jacques Vroegop, Operational Manager at Safe Lifting Europe, explains: “When considering the costs associated with purchasing lifting equipment, the rental solutions offered by Safe Lifting often are more favourable. In addition to the initial purchase price, equipment owners must also budget for maintenance, periodic recertification, storage, and more.”
Apart from this cost advantage, renting lifting and rigging gear at Safe Lifting also adds value and efficiency in other ways. “We do not just supply a tool,” Vroegop adds, “as from start to finish we can supply everything for a project, including drawings, engineering, people, and planning.” Being specialised in serving the dynamic and demanding heavy lifting sector, Safe Lifting works with the lifting industry’s top manufacturers to deliver solutions up to any capacity.
A look at Safe Lifting’s rental portfolio shows a comprehensive list of equipment. It includes a huge range of lifting, testing, site operations, marine operations, ROV, and hydraulic equipment. “We started our business as a reply to market demands, and today we serve clients around the globe by providing high quality equipment. Clients reach out to us for single items, but also for all the equipment they need for an entire project,” explains Vroegop.
“They know us as a company that delivers only world-class equipment. Whether it is a force measurement device, a spreader beam, a shackle, or any other below-the- hook tool, all our products are supplied with the high safety standards of the offshore industry in mind,” he continued
“With our background, we are familiar with deadlines, SHEQ requirements, and high standards. Each order involves thorough consultation. This way the products supplied are designed specifically for the application in hand. Our experts carry out quality assurance (QA) checks before any lifting and rigging gear leaves the facility and upon its return from site,” Vroegop elaborates.
“Of course, we advise our customers on using the equipment, but on request we can also offer our own trained and qualified personnel to do the lifting operations. In terms of products, we have everything from A to Z, but having our own specialist personnel means that we are a true one- stop-shop,” he adds.
Based in Vlaardingen, in the heart of the Port of Rotterdam, the company started business with a focus on the offshore oil & gas industry, however, the company’s services are also highly suitable for sectors outside of the oil & gas realm. “Today, we have clients from sectors as diverse as onshore construction and engineering, and inland shipping,” Vroegop states.
“We are of course still involved with offshore clients, where the energy transition is significant. As wind turbine components become bigger and heavier, the relevance of safe lifting operations becomes even more important. For our customers, Safe Lifting is a trusted brand. It is this confidence that puts the ‘safe’ into Safe Lifting’s name. In a complex lift with multiple components, it is imperative to know exactly how each element will behave. And because we know all the in’s and out’s of all our products, we can call ourselves Safe Lifting,” he concludes
