For industries that utilise heavy equipment, it is often important to contract out third-party heavy weighing services to confirm weight and centre of gravity. At Marginal Field, we are qualified and experienced in providing these weighing services. We also offer a heavy lifting service, where we use a spread of equipment—including climbing jacks and jack and pack arrangements—to lift heavy structures, access and maintain elevated systems or equipment, get equipment to high areas and more. These services, collectively, have made us an authority in both heavy lifting and heavy weighing in many industries, including shipbuilding, ship loading or port facility operations, mining, oil and gas, as well as construction and fabrication, to name a few.

For advice on your specific requirements for field engineering services and the operation of specialised equipment.
Whether you are a design engineer for a piece of equipment or the ultimate owner of that equipment, you need to be confident that you are adhering to all relevant compliance requirements. Weight and centre of gravity of these structures and machines are two critical points of compliance. This data is required for many heavy lift systems, transportation systems and other mechanisms to be approved and certified.
Specifically, we weigh material handling equipment, stackers, reclaimers, ship loaders, container cranes and the like. Our weight and centre of gravity data for these pieces of equipment help support machine certification, predict vessel performance and avoid problems with faulty equipment.
We also weigh exotic motor vessels, again to confirm weight and centre of gravity. This process can resolve tensions or inconsistencies between designers, builders and suppliers, thus ensuring that the machines perform as they should. We weigh oil and gas modules, to enable heavy lift or crane lift studies that determine or assign specifications for rigging arrangements. And we weigh hefty structures for transported on roadways. These weighing services are especially crucial for oversize transportation loads, as they help determine whether a load exceeds bridge or pavement weight capacities.
Our heavy weighing services, in large part, support our clients in their need to execute heavy lifting operations. Determining the centre of gravity on a piece of equipment can go a long way towards guaranteeing a safe heavyweight lifting project. Weighing massive structures for road transportation, meanwhile, can help our clients plot everything from routes to safety protections.
Marginal Field can also play a direct role in helping companies execute their heavy lifting projects. With our heavy lifting service, our clients don’t need to rely on their equipment to lift weighty structures, access transportation equipment, perform maintenance or refurbishment on bogey assemblies or carry out other similar projects. We have our own machinery —all thoroughly tested and certified—that we can use to assist you with these processes. For some clients, this option is preferable to going through the process of weighing, checking, testing and certifying.
Whether your enterprise is looking for a heavy lifting service or in need of dependable heavy weighing services, Marginal Field is ready to help. Contact us today to learn more about our capabilities in these categories.
