One of Manuel’s notable accomplishments as a Heavy Lift Specialist for Becht was the successful replacement of a two stage Acid Settler in an HF Acid Unit. Manuel planned and supervised the erection of the 1500T crane in an extremely tight area where the crane boom had to be assembled over a live pipe rack. The job was completed without incident and the client saved several million dollars by avoiding an early shut down to remove the pipe rack.
