Rope hoisting and splicing

Tightly roped together

The act of hoisting ropes along the line requires enormous effort both in terms of its logistics and manpower, and is a highly complex challenge. After all, steel ropes weighing in the tons – up to 70 mm thick and several kilometers long – have to be brought into position. Even if a rope normally proves to be holding up the moment it is put into service, highest concentration is essential, particularly for hoisting the rope: It may not touch the ground at any time and it may not rotate on its axis.

Our staff has the best training and experience, also when it comes to preparing for the splicing of the rope. The rope’s length and tension have to be precisely in sync with the installation. On request, we can also expertly splice the rope ourselves.
