Ziv-Av design fulfills unique need for Taavura
Taavura is Israel’s largest road haulage and logistics company, renowned for creating innovative machines. A pioneer in efficient methods for hauling heavy objects, Taavura is currently expanding its overseas activities.
Israel Railways needed to transport their new carriages from Hamburg to Ashdod via sea. While loading/unloading services for the shipment would usually involve rolling the carriages onto the deck of the ship using rails, this time there was a new challenge: the carriages needed to be loaded into the hull of the ship.
Because this challenge would complicate operations significantly, Taavura was asked to provide a new loading and unloading system. And Taavura turned to Ziv-Av for help.
Given their ongoing partnership with Ziv-Av and their trust in the company’s value-added designs, Taavura chose Ziv-Av engineers to create a specialized design that would lift the heavy railway carriages at both the exit and destination ports.
Ziv-Av engineers designed a lifting equipment that would hold an entire carriage securely during a crane-lift by using huge clamps. These lifting clamps were designed with a strong weight capacity so that the carriage could be safely secured and held in place when being loaded or unloaded onto a ship.
As an additional service, Ziv-Av’s versatile team supervised the manufacturing of the equipment elements in the shipyards. This helped ensure both the quality and the strength of the systems.
Ziv-Av created two lifting equipment for use in two different ports, providing an effective solution to Taavura’s unusual transport challenge.
