Heavy Lift Helicopters have Improved Industrial Applications for Alabama

In Alabama especially, heavy-lift helicopters have improved the efficiency of a number of industrial applications. They are more maneuverable than terrestrial cranes for construction and development, therefore are key in the precision placement of signage and utility installations in tightly packed metropolitan areas. They have the power to convey in a single lift thousands of pounds of materials via long line and external load capabilities while comfortably transporting a workforce of twenty or more people. They are additionally the consummate resource for Alabama’s support industry.

It’s common knowledge that the gulf coast is a hotbed for hurricane action. As recently as October 10th, 2018 US meteorologists have forecasted Hurricane Michael making landfall placing the majority of Alabama’s coastal cities on alert for storm surges, flooding, and high winds. Heavy lift helicopters are ideal in the application of rescue and retrieval because they can easily achieve access to remote areas or those cut off by flooding, can effectively and swiftly deliver drinking water and emergency supplies and aid in the rehabilitation efforts following natural disasters.

Alabama Heavy Lifts for Tower Construction

Tower Construction

Aerial installation of towers and antennas is the more cost-effective option when compared to conventional crane usage. Especially in areas of Alabama that may possess less than ideal terrain, may be remote or are environmentally protected where in order to construct towers expensive roadways may need to be installed otherwise. Additionally, ground cranes often don't have sufficient boom to adequately reach the tops of towers. Utilizing helicopters in setting tower sections can significantly reduce or eliminate setup and tear down costs of traditional cranes.

The service most often requested is in the placement of HVAC units, RTUs and adapter curves to the tops of Alabama's high rise buildings. Aircranes have proven to be more effective than ground cranes in remote locations or in areas possessing rugged terrain or destinations that have little or no infrastructure.

Advertising sign placement

Access to effective advertising strategies and the platform from which to showcase your brand is crucial for any corporation or industry in Alabama. Helicopters have proven an indispensable resource in helping to achieve maximum exposure via the precision placement of company names, logos, and banners and are often markedly more economical than using land-based cranes in the installation of billboards and signage. Not only can helicopters achieve access to rooftops of skyscrapers and high rises, but they can also sufficiently maneuver so as to accurately place signs without causing damage to surrounding structures. In metropolitan areas of Alabama that may be high profile for traffic congestion, helicopters may, at times, mitigate the need for detours and street closures.

Alabama Outsize Loads

Heavy Lifts

Heavy lift helicopters are ideal in the precision placement of objects, signage, in the movement of heavy or outsized equipment and in the transport of materials for construction and development. Often heavy lift operations require the use of specialty helicopters called air cranes as a means of delivering supplies to high rise buildings, in hard to reach locations and in the installation of towers.

Alabama Pipeline Construction & Utility Placement

Pipeline Construction

Aerial support for construction in Alabama is a superlative alternative to employing the use of OTR vehicles in the delivery of construction materials, tower sections, scaffolding, hardware and in the transport of construction vehicles. Not only are helicopters more timely in delivering equipment and accouterments, but they are also significantly less impactful to environments. Additional advantages in utilizing helicopters in industrial cargo deliveries include no disruption to traffic flow on busy thoroughfares, they can reach highly elevated rooftops, remote or offshore construction sites, rigs and installations and are a more secure option, reducing the risk of equipment and tool theft.
