The company, which makes force measurement equipment, joined fellow Leea members as a range of lifting and rigging equipment was displayed in a tabletop-style showcase in the Jubilee Room.

Members of Parliament (MPs) – including DLM’s local MP, Caroline Nokes, the member for Romsey and Southampton North – filtered into the area following the Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs) session in the Commons Chamber.

As a company that works in the design, manufacture, repair, and calibration of load cells, load monitoring, and cable working equipment for the wind energy and wider renewables sector, DLM took ownership of a ‘Lifting in energy’ theme at the event. Other Leea members and industry stakeholders tackled subjects such as logistics, safety at height and the military.

Martin Halford, managing director at Dynamic Load Monitoring, who was present at the event, pitched to attendees about the important role the lifting industry will have to play in the success of the ‘Powering Up Britain’ initiative, which recently set out how the government will enhance the country’s energy security, seize the economic opportunities of the transition, and deliver on net zero commitments. To that end, DLM demonstrated how the lifting industry has a role to play in each step of the wind turbine installation process and why safety is paramount at every stage.

Halford added: “It was an unparalleled platform to amplify our industry’s voice among influential decision-makers. MPs and the wider parliamentary community made their way around the hall, visiting the tables, finding out more from [Leea] members. The key takeaway was that the lifting industry is unbelievably important and full of risk, but the association and its members manage that risk and ensure safe and high-quality load lifting, which is also a #GLAD2023 cornerstone.”
