PORTLAND, ORE, – August 2, 2023. Omega Morgan, a premier provider of specialized transportation, heavy rigging, machinery moving, and other industrial services, proudly announced today its asset acquisition of Intermountain Rigging and Heavy Haul (IRH), the Salt Lake City-based heavy haul and rigging specialist.
Life would be much easier if you could simply back up a U-Haul truck and roll your heavy industrial equipment onto it. The fact of the matter is that most machinery and equipment weren’t originally designed with ease of moving in mind.
Adding to the challenge is that many of these machines are highly calibrated and very sensitive to vibrations and other disturbances. One small bump on the road to the end destination could cause it to require expensive and time-consuming recalibration.
The following guide will give you a good idea of how to plan and successfully move heavy industrial equipment.
Moving an entire factory is a massive undertaking fraught with logistical difficulties, safety hazards, and unforeseen challenges. Adding to the immense pressure is the obvious fact that companies lose many millions of dollars during a production line shutdown.
The good news is that there is a definite method to follow when relocating your factory. At IRH, we have decades of experience helping small and large factories relocate under very tight deadlines. Read on to discover how to successfully relocate your factory full of heavy industrial machinery.
Choosing the right rigging equipment is imperative when moving heavy objects and machinery. Using the wrong tools for the job means you run the very real risk of damaging whatever you’re moving. Even more critical is knowing exactly how to use rigging equipment correctly.
IRH was proud to take part in the relocation of two Black Hawk helicopters from the Heber Valley Airport to the Utah Army Aviation Support Facility! Watch the video to see the relocation in action!
