SPECIAL SOLUTIONS

With over 40 years experience in the tower crane industry we pride ourselves in our ability to ascertain a customer’s requirements, assess any site limitations and suggest the most practical and cost effective lifting solution for a non-standard situation.
POTAIN MDT 178 ON JERSEY
Transporting a tower crane to Jersey along with a mobile crane to erect it adds significantly to the overall cost of the project. We recommended the use of the exceptionally light Potain MDT 178 flat top, city crane which could be erected using a 70 tonne mobile crane. We were, therefore, able to provide our customer with the 2.7T at 50m lift capacity they required without incurring excessive shipping costs.
JOST JL 316 AT UXBRIDGE
The Jost JL 316 was hired to construct Travelodge’s first modular build hotel at Uxbridge. The crane was lifting 14 tonne steel modules. The crane was positioned within the collapse zone of a railway which would normally result in the lifting capacity being de-rated by 25%. However, in conjunction with the crane manufacturer we designed, manufactured and installed a collar around the tower and guyed the crane to the ground. Network Rail were able to accept the resulting additional level of stability provided extra protection for the railway line and in return agreed we need not apply the usual de-rate.
