LOCATION
Normandy, France
KETTLE WEIGHT
260 Tonnes

With limited space and no good craneage available locally, Zinco steps in and brings along some British talent.

CUSTOMER FOCUS

A large industrial group wanted Zinco to take care of the complete kettle change. On top of the zinc transfers, enclosure disassembly, top plates and furnace refurbishing, the Customer asked for help in moving kettles.

OUR RESPONSE

Thanks to a successful partnership with a leading craneage and rigging Company in the UK, planning included their services and resulted in a record time project with some smooth moves with a special VersaLift, a very capable forklift of a special kind! The Customer end up being so satisfied that some good Champagne was opened up on the last day. On top of the good results, ZInco was able to propose a modification to the top of the combustion chamber, which resulted in an increased heat exchange surface.
