German power plant contractor Liebschner Energietechnik (LET) put domestic load shifting equipment manufacturer Power Attack through its paces on a job to move 50 tonne containers.

The two containers were home to a 2,000 kW MTU diesel engine and 2,400 kVA generator for backup power to offshore wind turbines in case of downtime for service and maintenance.

As overhead crane capacity was limited in the workshop Power Attack was called in to offer an alternative. The two containers were mounted onto skates and moved out of the LET workshop using a pair of PowerAttack MTC25 C load moving devices.

Each unit has a capacity of 25 tonnes and models are available with power from a Lithium-polymer battery or via a mains cable.
