Crane Repair, Failure Analysis, & Expert Witness

We are often called upon for consultations for damaged cranes and accident investigations. Liftech uses our industry leading expert knowledge, familiarity with a wide range of designs, and expert analysis to provide clients with insight into the cause of crane failures and for designing repairs and modifications to prevent reoccurrences.

Our repair services include assessing the situation, designing temporary securing, designing repairs, and reviewing the repair work. Repair projects typically include damage caused by fatigue, crane-to-crane and vessel-to-crane collisions, boom hoist failures, snag, storm wind, tornadoes, earthquakes, and others. Repairs typically involve replacing members, strengthening local areas, and heat straightening. We are occasionally retained as an expert witness to assess crane accidents, evaluate repair estimates, and help resolve disputes.
