Q7 Service

Maintenance, repairs and operation



Tests pursuant to the German Accident Prevention Regulations


According to the German Accident Prevention Regulations, lifting equipment must be tested at fixed intervals to check that it is in safe working order.

Our service team includes highly qualified experts in cranes and welding, specialists in hydraulics and electrical engineers.

These employees have the appropriate level of qualifications and are responsible for ensuring that legal provisions are complied with.


Repairs and maintenance


We perform regular on-site maintenance work. This work is conducted by service staff with multiple qualifications and faults are quickly detected and immediately resolved.

If a necessary component is not in stock, our efficient manufacturing plant is able to produce a replacement at short notice.



24 h/7 d service


Minimising downtimes during operation is one of the important tasks carried out by the project management team. As part of your service agreement, our highly qualified service team is available around the clock, including at the weekend and on bank holidays.

Our employees have been trained to work offshore and can also be flown by helicopter to remote locations. By arrangement, replacement parts can be stored at our service centre in Großefehn, Germany, and in the future, it will also be possible for them to be stored in Denmark.


Training and operation


Our lifting specialists pass on their knowledge to ensure the smooth running of your lifting equipment and lifting operations.

Some lifting processes are extremely difficult and present additional risk. In these cases, our lifting specialists can operate the lifting equipment for you.


Risk analysis and assessment



Point 1 of Annex I of the 2006/42/EC Machinery Directive states: “The manufacturer of machinery or his authorised representative must ensure that a risk assessment is carried out in order to determine the health and safety requirements which apply to the machinery. The machinery must then be designed and constructed taking into account the results of the risk assessment.”

This applies to the manufacturers of machinery that fall under the scope of this Directive. Lifting equipment is included in this.

Manufacturers must perform a risk assessment  that determines all risks that may arise when using the lifting equipment for its intended purpose and that takes into account any foreseeable misuse.

To avoid possible risks and lessen the risk of dangerous situations arising, manufacturers must define measures that can be used to avoid or minimise risks.

The lifting equipment must then be designed and constructed taking into account the results of the risk assessment and the measures defined.

Operators of lifting equipment are obliged to carry out a risk assessment for this equipment. The following points must be taken into account when performing this assessment:

– Interactions with other work equipment when the lifting device is in operation.

– Risks that may arise when using the lifting equipment itself.

– Risks that may arise between the lifting equipment and the working environment.

Moreover, when testing work equipment, operators must above all determine the type and scope of the required tests, as well as when they must be carried out. Employers also have to identify and lay down the requirements to be fulfilled by personnel appointed by them to test and trial the work equipment.

The mandatory process of analysing the risks involved in using the lifting equipment is sometimes very challenging and time-consuming.

AXZION-GKS employs highly qualified experts in lifting technology to create these analyses and carries out this work in collaboration with the equipment operators.



Handling instructions


Handling instructions that explain how to use the lifting equipment correctly are increasingly required. In addition to describing the lifting process in detail, these documents should discuss special cases.

The mandatory process of analysing the risks involved in using the lifting equipment is sometimes very challenging and time-consuming.

AXZION-GKS employs highly qualified experts in lifting technology as well as specialized graphic designers to create these documents and perform these analyses, carrying out this work in collaboration with the equipment operators.
