Muscat Khimji Ramdas Oil and Gas division has launched Enerpac's synchronous lifting technology in Oman. The technology can be deployed in the oil and gas sector besides construction, power plants, reactors and other related industries.

Nailesh Khimji, Director of Khimji Ramdas, said the company had always tried to bring world-class products and specialised engineering services to Oman.

"We are pleased to introduce this new technology from Enerpac to the Oman market. Through this specific software, the lifting and lowering will be extremely accurate. The lift system can lift even the heaviest loads with a controlled accuracy of 1mm," he said. Enerpac is a global leader in high-force tools and equipment.

Fash Shahrokni, managing director of Enerpac, said the company's Synchronous Lifting solutions technology would benefit the oil and gas sector besides power plants, reactors, heavy machinery, construction and other related industries of the sultanate.


Synchronised lifting helps to improve the movement of heavy machinery while lifting, lowering, structure levelling, oil platform lifting and weighing, tunnel jacking and pushing, bridge lifting and positioning, Shahrokni said.

The Enerpac Synchronous Lift System is a combination of digital control, switching and monitoring devices. Due to the large infrastructure in plants, reactors, construction sites and production areas, the new technology will help in lifting, lowering, positioning of large and complex structures regardless of weight distribution.
