Two booms are better than one !

TANDEM LIFTING OPERATIONS…..

When working indoors and there is little room for machinery. Spider cranes can provide an excellent solution to many scenarios.

Seen here we have 2 UNIC spider cranes, working together to stand a GRP tank upright with extra care not to let anything touch the fixed attachments on the vessel.

The tank was brought into the building by pallet trucks and Forklifts, then we positioned the two mini cranes to take control.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We then lifted the bottom of the tank off the floor, while the larger spider crane lifted the top end of the tank.

the larger crane then raised the tank upright, taking care not to collide with the conduit and other elements above, as the crane raised the tank.

The tank started to rise, and the smaller crane steadied the bottom, and kept it off the ground.

The tank was then above it’s final position and the smaller crane removed. The Tank was then lowered down and positioned exactly.
