Vector Lifting is a Western Australian based engineering firm specialising in the design and manufacture of mechanical lifting system and jib cranes.
The Hyundai Hopman Cup at its home at the Perth Arena, with all matches played under the Vector Lifting Retractable Roof. Being an opened air event to replicate conditions for the Australian Open, the Retractable Roof was opened and adjusted throughout the entire tournament, with operation occurring during match play over both players and spectators.
Vector Lifting designed, manufactured and installed the travelling equipment, including control system for the two separate roof panels. Each roof panel is controlled independently to provide shade for spectators, protect the bowl area from inclement weather and to track the sun to prevent shadows being cast on the court.

Since our inception in 1989 we have developed an extensive range of cranes and lifting systems and undertaken a variety of engineering projects for clients in Australia and internationally.
