In the fall of 2021 Storvik signed a contract to deliver a “Guard Rail cutter” for Arvid Gjerde. This implementation cuts old road railings with the help of a crane.
The guard rail cutter main features are:
- Safe cutting of damaged and tensioned guard rails
- Substitute manual work and use of angle grinder
- Removal of damaged posts with claws
- Hydraulically operated, may be used by excavator or vehicle with crane
- 360 degree rotation
“The “rail cutter” will provide enhanced HSE for operators repairing the rail structure alongside the roads, simultaneously it will reduce cutting time on the rail. Storvik will in close cooperation with subcontractor Servi Ulsteinvik deliver the rail cutter to A.Gjerde.” Says project manager Ole Christian Strømsvåg from Storvik
