Tandem lift at a biological waste treatment facility


Our customer asked us to load the 49 tons weight, 35 meters long, 2,75 meters diameter chimney where it was manufactured and erect it in its final location 3 kilometers away. We took the job without having an appropriate rigging plan.


We made a custom rigging plan for the lifting process, supplied lifting and rigging equipment including 3 meters long spreader beam and 500t and 200t mobile cranes.
