Helicopter Lifts or Helicopter Cranes are, as the name suggests, lifting or moving something using a helicopter. We use a Heavy Lift Helicopter, capable of lifting weights of up to 5,000 kgs.

Why a Helicopter?

Helicopter Lifts are a solution when no other access to the site is viable. It can be a geographically isolated area or a highly congested city centre location (such as central London).

Our Lifts.

Plant Movements have a wealth of experience in projects which require Helicopter Lifts. Our projects include Westfield Shopping Centre and Victoria Station. In addition, we recently completed a large office block at Kingswood in Surrey, which involved moving 10,000 kgs in component parts of 3,500 kgs (AHUs & Chillers).
