Project overview

Morson Projects were appointed by Sellafield Ltd to carry out the design, analysis, manufacture and CE marking for a new B13 Lifting Beam & Stand.


A bespoke adjustable lifting beam and park stand was required to support waste flasks during transportation operations on site. To enable the accurate design and implementation, our team delivered:

  • WLL 15,000Kg (15 Tonnes)
  • The design utilised adjustable trunnions, detailed markings and a leadscrew driven by a hand wheel which ensures correct alignment. These were all used to secure and balance different waste flask configurations.
  • A full stress investigation completed to ensure suitability and conformance to regulations, including stress reports and a complete technical file.
