Triple Crane Lift, Crystal Brook Turnout.
MAX preformed a three-crane lift using our 400t, 250t and 180t cranes. Preliminary work was carried out with the removal of the old track in sections of 10 tonne and was carried out by single cranes. Once the removal of the old track was completed, the three cranes worked together to lift the new 80 tonne concrete turnout which was 60 metres, long into position.
Each crane had a 33% capacity safety allowance factored into the load share calculations. For each of the cranes combined, a total of 10 Trailers of Counterweight were required.
The lift was completed incident free, and a safety supervisor was on site at all times.
