Scalo Fluviale replace heavy steel structures with PORTA-GANTRY

The Cooperativa Scalo Fluviale has an incredible 104 years’ experience providing transportation and handling services for machinery, electronics equipment, works of art and removals on the mainland and the islands of Venice.

The company has a fleet of 17 boats for transporting goods with cranes and assistance from specialized personnel who guarantee loading and unloading services, goods handling, assembly and disassembly.

The REID aluminium gantry crane WLL 3000kg replaces the heavy steel structures previously used in some of the most challenging locations in this unusual city. The unique portable gantry crane system was chosen for its lightweight aluminium structure and flexible capability, providing a working capacity of 3000kg, with a range of beam lengths and height adjustments, easily assembled within manual handling guidelines by just a few operators – essential in the confined spaces they operate in. The PORTA-GANTRY range is fully CE certified, which is important when handling some of the world’s prize art and antiquities.

Scalo Fluviale is very pleased with their PORTA-GANTRY 3000 investment bought for installations at the Palazzo Grassi. More recently it has been used at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia for the assembly /disassembly of the H. Kollof mock-up and also at the 55th International Art Exhibition.
