Boom Failure

Following a catastrophic boom failure of a 55 ton Grove Rough Terrain crane, Kova Engineering South Ltd. was retained to complete an accident investigation to determine the root cause of boom failure.

The job scope for this project was multifaceted in returning the crane to serviceable condition.  Once the cause of failure was substantiated, we assessed the crane for any secondary component damage, we provided engineering guidance and procedures to build a new boom section, we witnessed load testing upon component re-assembly, and provided engineering certification documentation for the rebuilt boom and crane.
