Bellara Power Plant in Jijel Algeria⠀
⠀
With the upcoming opening of the Bellara power plant in Jijel, Algeria, Sarens is on site with a 10-member crew and two powerful crawler cranes to perform a series of forty lifts.⠀
⠀
Bellara is a 1.400MW gas-powered plant and a key part of the larger Algerian and Qatari Bellara steel complex project. Algeria's Sonelgaz utility began construction of this $800 million-dollar facility in 2013, and it is slated to be fully operational by the end of this year. Sarens is undertaking lift operations for this project on behalf of client Hyundai Engineering.⠀
⠀
At the start of the operation, Sarens used a modular trailer to transport modules from storage to the lift area. Then, lift operations began. Today, the crew is on its way to completing the full series of lifts, which include 118t-203t power plant modules lifted at 22.5-30 metres.⠀
⠀
The equipment for the operation, which was already on site, took three days to set up. It includes:⠀
⠀
-CC2800-1 crawler crane (600t) in SSL configuration and with 84-metre main boom⠀
-CC2400-1 crawler crane (400t) in SH configuration and with 42-metre main boom⠀
-K25 modular trailer with 12 axles⠀
-One mobile crane⠀
⠀
One of the key challenges the crew faced was the new procedure the client was using to detach modules from the stand-up jig. This created a mere 6mm distance between the module and casing, and meant that the crane operator had to coordinate perfectly with the lifting supervisor to successfully execute each lift.⠀
⠀
Sarens congratulates the crew on the ground for their excellent work so far, and wishes them a successful operation as they work to complete all of the lifts.⠀

Antonov And Chapman Freeborn Aid Oil Industry’s Critical Response To Oil Spills⠀
⠀
ANTONOV Airlines and Chapman Freeborn Airchartering have taken part in a ground-breaking test flight to transport by air, instead of by sea, a capping stack, which is the vital equipment used by the oil industry in the event of an oil spill.⠀
⠀
The successful test flight – the first time ever that a complete capping stack has been transported by air – means that oil companies can now reach faraway oil spills much faster and cap the wells more quickly.⠀
⠀
ANTONOV, working with charter specialist Chapman Freeborn and its client Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL), deployed an AN-124 to carry the fully assembled subsea capping stack and housing, which weighed a massive 85.5 tonnes and measured 11.5 by 5.5 by 3.9 meters.⠀
⠀
Prior to the successful 1h 23m test flight to and from Stavanger in Norway, transporting capping stack equipment by air would have meant breaking it down into multiple payloads and reassembling it at the destination, before moving it to the incident site.⠀

Sarens Leads Behind the Scenes⠀
⠀
The Group is pleased to release a new vide which shows how crew members use two of the world's biggest crawler cranes to load in and load out modules weighing over 1.000 tonnes.⠀
⠀
Sarens is proud to be on-site at the Maasvlakte 2 Terminal in Rotterdam, executing onshore logistics for an offshore wind farm operation on behalf of BOW Terminal BV.⠀
⠀
Since October of 2017, Sarens has been on site, offloading incoming wind farm modules, transporting and placing them carefully into position on the quay, and loading them out for offshore transport to the North Sea.⠀
⠀
The CC8800-1 lifts each of the 450-480-tonne modules and transfers it to the 500t-capacity TP handler, essentially a 35-metre SMLT tower with one 650t-capacity strand jack and SPMTs. The TP handler then expertly manoeuvres each module to its designated position on the quay, carefully setting it down into position.⠀
⠀
When it is time to transport these wind farm modules offshore for installation, Sarens loads them out onto a waiting barge. Both TPs and their corresponding MPs (mono piles) are loaded onto the barge together. Sarens lifts and loads the TPs with the CC8800-1, and then the CC8800-1 and CC6800 work in tandem to carefully lift the MPs. These mono piles weigh between 300 and 1.130 tonnes each, with diameters from 3-8 metres and lengths of up to 112 metres.⠀
⠀
For these operations, the CC8800-1 is in SSL 72-metre configuration with SL carrier, and the CC6800 is in SSL 66-metre configuration with SL carrier. They arrived on-site via road, and assembly took four weeks for the TP handler and three weeks for the two cranes. The cranes will both remain on site for the next several months, performing load-ins and load-outs for this major logistics operation.⠀

ALE Lifts Record in Iraq⠀
⠀
ALE has utilised the largest-ever capacity cranes in Iraq while performing the heavy lifting works at the Karbala Refinery Project. The quick mobilisation of the cranes has also enabled ALE to optimise the overall project schedule.⠀
⠀
As part of a bigger scope involving several contracts for heavylifting, the global heavylifting contractor has been tasked to perform more than 350 lifts of refinery components over one year.⠀
⠀
ALE has maximised its extensive fleet of equipment to carry out this project in the most efficient way. 24 cranes, ranging from 50t to 1,600t, have been deployed, as well as a number of conventional trailers, together with 48 axles SPMT, for the onsite movement of heavy cargo.⠀
⠀
Alberto Pittaluga, Director of Iraq, explained: “For this project we were keen to optimise the project schedule as much as possible, selecting the best equipment for the job and maximizing mobilisation times. Within just one month, the cranes were shipped, transported to site and assembled, which is a huge achievement for everyone involved and demonstrates our commitment to our client’s timeframes.”⠀
⠀
The Karbala Refinery Project, based in the South Karbala province, commenced in 2016 with each contracted scope lasting between one to three years. ALE has previously performed the heavy transportation of approximately 45 oversized items, weighing up to 250t each. The heavy operations are expected to complete in April 2019.⠀
⠀
The new Karbala Oil Refinery is part of the country’s investment of $6.04bn, in which the facility is expected to have a refinery capacity of 140,000 barrels of crude oil per day.⠀

Liebherr Piles in Hong Kong⠀
⠀
Three Liebherr duty cycle crawler cranes were recently involved in the deep foundation work for a housing project in Hong Kong. Piles with a volume of 300 m³ each were installed in a restricted space with especially difficult ground conditions.⠀
⠀
 This involved the installation of 14 piles, which serve as the foundation for the building. The first stage was carried out by two HS 885 HD machines and one HS 8130 HD, each fitted with a mechanical grab and an oscillator. In order to achieve the necessary depth of 50 m, the contractor required ten working days per pile. The reason for the long production time was due to the difficult ground conditions. First of all groundwater emerged, followed by rock with a very high strength of 150 MPa. In order to penetrate this hard layer, the RCD method was used. With a diameter of 3 m, up to 300 m3 of concrete was required for the completion of each pile. In other words, about 40 truck mixers full.⠀

Sarens in France - Installing Bridges⠀
⠀
Sarens was commissioned to maneuver and install two bridge sections - PS10 and PS20 of the A36 in France. The construction of the A36 / N1019 interchange is part of the extensive 2 x 2 lane operation of the national road between the A31 (Langres) and the Swiss border (A16). This project will prove beneficial for travel between Belfort and Montbéliard, also making it safer.⠀
⠀
Sarens had to move the two bridge sections weighing 350T and 375T respectively. The PS10 measured 13.8 m wide and 50.75 m long, while PS20 measured 13.8 m wide and 53.4 m long and was shaped like a parallelogram. The parallelogram shape resulted in additional challenges for the team to move and install it safely.⠀
⠀
The two bridges were to be installed consecutively. The first bridge had to be installed over the highway during a weekend-night. The second bridge had to be installed over a regional road, during a weeknight, little over a week later. An additional challenge concerning the planning was the fact that all equipment had to be disassembled, transported to the other construction site a few kilometers further, and reassembled in between the installation of the first and second bridge.Sarens crew of five members deployed 16 axle lines K24 ST for the maneuvering and four jacking towers CS250 to jack the bridge sections and install them by placing the deck on the elastomeric supports on the concrete pillars of the future bridge. Bracing system BS610 with turntable connections were also deployed to compensate for the fact that one of the bridges was shaped like a parallelogram.⠀

ALE Safeguards Satellite Transport⠀
⠀
ALE continues to demonstrate its excellent standards and capabilities by performing the lifting and transportation of an Argentine satellite, SAOCOM 1A, for CONAE to be launched in a Space-X rocket.⠀
⠀
ALE was contracted to transport the satellite, weighing 12t, from its fabrication yard to Bariloche airport, where it was loaded into an Antonov plane, ready to be launched at Vandenberg air field. Using their long-standing experience, ALE worked with the most stringent risk management and quality control requirements throughout.⠀
⠀
The transport operations required a complete shut-down of the 10km route, as well as civilian, Police and military escorts at 4am. The heavy transport solution involved a convoy of over 12 vehicles, requiring four semi-trailers and two trailers to carry this challenging load. The cargo was delivered with minimum accelerations, controlled temperature and moisture conditions.⠀
⠀
Cooperation with the airplane’s crew was critical to deliver on schedule and the Volga-Dnerp Antonov airplane was waiting on arrival.⠀
⠀
The lifting operations were planned carefully in accordance with the client’s standards and ALE lifted the satellite onto the skidding system, where it was skidded into the airplane.⠀
⠀
“Despite weighing just 12t, which is relatively low for the typical loads we move, there was a huge amount of pressure, both politically and economically, as the satellite is so highprofile,” explained Raul Anriquez, ALE’s Project Manager.⠀
⠀
”Once the rocket is launched, ALE will then perform the heavy transport of ancillary equipment within the USA and perform the maritime transportation of remaining components back to Chile and overland to Argentina. It is expected to be launched in the Falcon X rocket, belonging to Elon Musk’s SpaceX company, by October 2018.

Big Mast in Breda is Removed by a Mammoet Crane⠀
⠀
The skyline of Breda changes, KPN-mast of 70 meters high is being dismantled by a Mammoet crane.⠀
⠀
The skyline of Breda has changed a little bit. The characteristic antenna mast of approximately 70 meters high at the KPN building on the Oude Vest was removed. Incidentally, few Breda citizens seem to be upset for the dismantling, because the mast is not very beautiful.⠀
⠀
The mast was the third highest point in Breda, was placed in 1987 and has been used for decades by telecom companies and broadcasting services.⠀

Seajacks Scylla in Cuxhaven⠀
⠀
Seajacks Scylla arrived in Cuxhaven on 23rd August and left at 09.00 on Friday 31st August loaded with the first three sets of monopiles and transition pieces for installation on the Deutsche Bucht wind farm in the German North Sea. As this article is being written the vessel is on the 1st turbine location approximately 110kms north of the Dutch island of Ameland⠀
⠀
There are 31 transition pieces to be installed on 31 monopile foundations.⠀
⠀
31 monopiles fabricated in Rostock by EEW, each of monopiles weighing \- 1,100t. These have been transported from Rostock by barge and loaded directly from the barge by the main crane on board the Seajacks Scylla.⠀
⠀
The remaining 2 foundations are mono bucket foundations developed by the  Fred. Olsen company, Universal Foundations. These last 2 foundations will be installed next summer.⠀

Kuebler Hauls Heaviest in Southern Germany⠀
⠀
Kuebler Spedition, a member of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) network in Germany, reports on their transport of a 272t heavy transformer from Nijmegen, Netherlands to Kupferzell, Germany. This was the heaviest transportation ever carried out through the Schwaebisch Hall region in Southern Germany.⠀
⠀
Based on careful planning, over 1.5 years, the transport started in Nijmegen where it was loaded onto a Rhine river vessel to Heilbronn in Germany. From there he transformer was transported to Michelfeld on one of the Kuebler Spedition special hydraulic-lifting heavy duty trailers. These are certified for carrying a 350 ton load and able to lift the cargo upto 1.5 meter high over obstacles on the road. The transformer arrived at Kuebler Spedition’s Heavy Cargo storage in Michelfeld, which is specially equipped for the storage of oil filled transformers. This storage facility is situated just off the official heavy cargo transport road for that region.⠀
⠀
After a complete closing of a major highway the transport convoy passed through several small villages enroute, where the villagers looked on in amazement and others where the villagers doubted whether a transport of this size would be able to pass through. But everywhere it went the onlookers marvelled on the size, the complete length of the special trailer and the tractors, not only pulling but also pushing where needed.⠀
⠀
More than 30 people were involved in planning this remarkable operation. On arrival, on time, in Kupferzell the escorting police and transport insurers inspector stated: “Everything worked like textbook and we are very satisfied with the work delivered by the Kuebler Spedition team”.⠀

Royal Cargo to the rescue⠀
⠀
When a Xiamen Air B737-800 skidded off the runway at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in the Philippines on August 16, Royal Cargo came to the rescue.⠀
⠀
Heavy rain made the ground soft, so the 48-ton (43.5-tonne), 40m-long aircraft had become stuck in the grassy area where it had come to rest.⠀
⠀
In an urgent recovery operation, Royal Cargo used its 500-tonne capacity Liebherr LTM-1500 crane to lift and transfer the B737-800 onto a Scheuerle/Kamag 12-line multi-axle trailer, which took it to a ramp near the airport’s Terminal 3 where it was unloaded.⠀
⠀
Manila-headquartered Royal Cargo is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC).⠀

SPMT in Sub-Saharan Africa with Marine Maroc⠀
⠀
Recently, four modular combinations of Cometto self-propelled trailers MSPE 40t in side-by-side configuration have been involved in heavy duty movements by customer Marine Maroc.⠀
⠀
The project consisted of the transport of six diesel engines each weighing 215t and six generators each weighing 72t for the power plant of Kayes in Mali. The transport company Marine Maroc handled this challenging project for its final customer Bolloré Logistics on behalf of BWSC Denmark.⠀
⠀
“The MSPE convoy formed by eight axle lines has been coupled side-by-side with other eight axle vehicles”, explains Daniel Delorme, the CEO of Marine Maroc. “We reached a platform width of five meters and a payload of about 600t always assuring the safest transport conditions of the load. They were used for the final movement of the project to position the engines inside the power house on the job site, alongside the foundations.”⠀
⠀
Cometto offers four interchangeable series of MSPE having capacities up to 70t per axle line for the newest MSPE Evo3.  Thanks to the modularity, the versatility and the precision of maneuvers even in confined areas, as well as the wide range of accessories, Cometto MSPE offers many transport solutions depending on the specific requirements of the load. It is the ideal transport tool for many different applications such as heavy haulage, heavy Industry, shipyard, oil & gas, offshore, etc…⠀
⠀
Each series is available in two different widths (2,430 or 3,000mm) and the modules can be composed of 3, 4, 5 or 6 axle line bogies. Many types of power pack units (PPU) are available in various strengths, each depending on the number of axles being driven.⠀

IHC IQIP Combi Lift with Multiple Connections⠀
⠀
In the harsh conditions of the offshore wind sector, crane operations can often be labour-intensive, and result in excessive wear and tear to wires and sheaves. A new way of hoisting developed by IHC IQIP has overcome many of these challenges, reduced operational time and costs, and increased the efficiency and safety factor of offshore projects.⠀
⠀
The Combi Lifting Spread can lift up to WLL 1700Te (present solution) and consists of multiple installation tools used for lifting operations during the installation of foundation in the offshore wind sector.⠀
⠀
IHC IQIP provides multiple tools that are used during foundation installations and has already made these tools to be compatible with the Combi Lifting Spread. These tools include their Hydrohammer, Transition Piece Lifting Tool (TPLT), Flange Pile Upending Tool (FPUT), Integrated Monopile Installer (including the Noise Mitigation System - NMS). In addition, they developed versatile lifting sockets to allow general sling and shackle rigged connections for further flexibility. The system can be extended to include other tools if required.⠀
⠀
The Combi Lifting Spread was introduced in March 2018 and has now successfully completed its first project. The system is not only designed for future offshore wind projects but can also be used in other lifting operations with repetitive lift sequences where safety and cost savings are a priority.⠀

ALE Jacks for Perth Bridge⠀
⠀
ALE is actively involved in projects worldwide. Namely projects that consist moving and installing parts that are abnormally heavy or are huge in size.⠀
⠀
The R&D department in Breda manufactures equipment for all the company’s departments worldwide to carry out projects of all sorts in the sectors: civil construction, mining, the offshore industry, the energy sector and shipyards.⠀
⠀
“The earlier we are involved in a project, the better we can help our customers in providing them tailormade solutions,” says Ronald Hoefmans, Group Technical Director, ALE.⠀
⠀
A special project for ALE was the Swan River Bridge in Perth, Australia. Hoefmans: “During this project we had to build two temporarily 50 metres high towers, in a narrow space on the bridge pillars, to install the arches of the bridge. There was no space for auxiliary cranes to help building the towers.⠀
⠀
We developed a unique solution with the Mega Jack-system, a system that could build the 50 metres high towers itself and additionally pull up the bridge elements on site while being in the narrow space.”⠀

Modulift frame lifts vessel in Iceland⠀
⠀
Icelandic crane rental company DS Lausnir provided lifting and rigging gear, including a frame made of Modulift beams, to lift a 45t boat into water for the first time at a harbour in Hafnarfjörður on the southwest coast of the country, about 10km south of Reykjavík.⠀
⠀
Lausnir chose a 250t capacity Grove GMK 5250 (a 2016 model) from its 14-strong fleet of mobile cranes to lift the 5.5m-wide and 12m-long vessel from the dockside into the sea, upon completion of the manufacturing process. Trefjar Ltd. makes a variety of fishing, passenger, and other fibreglass boats, in addition to aquaculture equipment and acrylic parts.⠀
⠀
Below-the-hook, Lausnir employed 12m-long, 20t capacity slings and a frame comprised of MOD 50 beams, which each offer up to 50t at 8m or 26 ft. and up to 13m or 42 ft. at a lower capacity, but in this case combined to form a 550cm x 600cm frame utilising CMOD corner frames, from which additional slings were rigged to each of the four corners.⠀
⠀
Daníel Sigurðarson, owner of DS Lausnir, said: “It was an easy choice as there is no other approved beam in Iceland that can handle a heavy lift like this. We do own a selection of beams but they are only for internal use, so we sourced the beams for this job directly. Their excellent service and fast response to our demands helps us minimize our own stock. It only took a couple of weeks to get what we needed delivered to Iceland.”⠀

Mammoet completes roll-off operation for 3152-ton HRSG module⠀
⠀
Mammoet has successfully completed a complex roll-off operation for one of the largest HRSG modules to ever be transported by barge. PSEG contracted Mammoet to move the fully assembled 3152-ton module from Coeymans, New York to the Bridgeport Harbor Station 5.⠀
⠀
The new state-of-the-art-combined-cycle gas plant is currently under construction on PSEG Power Connecticut’s existing site in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Following the project’s expected completion in 2019, the 485 MW power station will provide over 500,000 homes and businesses in south-western Connecticut with clean, sustainable energy.⠀
⠀
This is not the first time Mammoet has transported a HRSG module of this scale by barge and offloaded it onsite. In a similar project, the HRSG module was built offsite to reduce the overall construction schedule. It was the transported by barge down the Hudson River. Measuring 145’ long, 120’ high, and 39’ wide, it was moved onto the barge on 141 axle lines of SPMT’s which remained underneath the unit during the transport.⠀
⠀
Upon arrival at the Bridgeport site, the module could not directly be offloaded from the barge, due to insufficient water levels. Mammoet proposed placing a grounding barge between the offload site and the barge carrying module so it could sit in deep water levels. The module’s barge was securely fastened to the grounding barge, which provided the stability to transport the module on the SPMTs over the grounding barge and onto the offload site⠀

Link-Belt Announces New TCC-1200 and Wireless Remote Control⠀
⠀
To better meet customer demands, Link-Belt Cranes has announced an upgrade to base rating of its 110-ton telecrawler to 120-ton. Shipments of the new TCC-1200 will begin fourth quarter 2018.⠀
⠀
A common lower carbody to the TCC-1400 has improved efficiency of production and provided an upgrade in base rating from the previous TCC-1100 telescopic crawler crane.“This new TCC-1200 has earned its 120-ton badge. We tested and passed the new base rating at the same radius as the original 110-ton,” said Scott Knight, Product Manager for Lattice and Telescopic Crawler Cranes.The TCC-1200 offers an impressive capacity chart at radius that rivals even lattice crawler cranes with a similar base rating. The TCC-1200 is a full power boom, fabricated from ultra-high-strength steel and formed in Link-Belt’s own formed boom facility. The main boom height is 40 - 150 ft. (12.2 - 45.7 m) long and incorporates Teflon wear pucks to eliminate boom grease. It will come with three track widths – extended , intermediate , and retracted which offers varying footprint capability in popular telecrawler sectors such as energy, industrial, and infrastructure.Wireless Remote ControlAn optional wireless remote control system is now available for the new TCC-1200 and TCC-1400. The wireless remote provides a solution for industries and other operations where required, and allows the operator to be out of the cab and still have control of the crane.⠀

Mammoet Loads AN-225⠀
⠀
Mammoet loaded four 140-ton reformed-gas waste heat boilers on the world’s largest cargo plane, the Antonov AN-225, at the Leipzig/Halle Airport in preparation for four separate transports of the boilers to a chemical plant in Saudi Arabia by air.⠀
⠀
The Antonov AN-225 is the only aircraft of its kind which has an overall capacity up to 250 tons of freight and can load and transport a 20-meter-long and 140-ton reformed-gas waste heat boiler. The reformed-gas waste heat boilers are part of the plant’s heat recovery system.⠀
⠀
The reformed-gas waste heat boilers were first transported by their manufacturer in Berlin to the port in Aken one at a time, via inland water vessels on the Elbe River. That was the fastest and most efficient way, since the capacity of the bridges along the route was not designed for the weight of a 220-ton road transport. At the port in Aken, Mammoet organized the transfer from barge to road transport using a Kirow MKZ 3000 dockside crane.⠀
⠀
Following road transport to the Leipzig/Halle Airport, Mammoet moved the oversized freight onto the heavy-duty ramp of the aircraft. Each 20-meter-long reformed-gas waste heat boiler was tandem lifted into the Antonov. It was calculated in advance that one 400-ton and one 350-ton mobile crane would be needed. Various mobile cranes were used, ranging from the Tadano Faun ATF 400 G6 to the Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1. This giant airplane takes off relatively infrequently. The flight in April was the first cargo flight for the 30-year-old colossus since receiving upgrades between November 2016 and March 2018.⠀

Liebherr mobile crane installs new bells on Paderborn Cathedral⠀
⠀
A Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 mobile crane operated by Hofmann Kran-Vermietung GmbH & Co. KG played a major role in the musical enhancement of the chimes at Paderborn Cathedral. The eight existing bells were supplemented by two additional ones. The smaller one, weighing in at just one tonne, was no challenge for the 500-tonne crane. The installation of the larger bell, weighing 13.5 tonnes and with a diameter of 2.7 metres, on the other hand, demanded precision from both the crane and the installation team.⠀
⠀
Hofmann assembled the LTM 1500-8.1 on the cathedral square in constricted conditions with a 42-metre luffing jib and 90 tonnes of ballast. There was no need to guy the telescopic boom for the planned load cases. The crane operator extended the telescopic boom to a length of 47 metres to hoist the bells to a platform placed at a height of 32 metres on the tower, as they had to be lifted over high scaffolding parts. The bells were placed on a carriage and pulled through an existing window into the belfry. Although the window had been enlarged beforehand for the large bell, the crane and team had to work with millimetre precision to move the massive bell into the correct position.⠀

800-year-old bathhouse moved in Turkey⠀
⠀
Relocation of a historic bathhouse started early Monday in southeastern Turkey's Batman province.⠀
⠀
The 800-year-old Artuklu Hamam is being transported from the ancient city of Hasankeyf — which will be flooded due to construction of the Ilısu dam nearby — to the new Hasankeyf Culture Park above the water line.⠀
⠀
The 1,500-ton building will travel 3 kilometers (1.86 miles) on a 256-wheeled Self-Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT).⠀
⠀
Authorities are working to save all the important historic sites of Hasankeyf gradually by moving them to the park before the construction of the dam is completed.⠀
⠀
According to Batman Governor Ahmet Deniz, six more monuments will be moved.⠀
⠀
The next scheduled relocation projects are a mosque and a zawiya — an ancient Islamic religious school.⠀
⠀
The relocation of the bathhouse cost around TL 37 million ($7.1 million), media outlets reported.⠀

The north span of the new all stainless-steel bridges connecting the South Stanley Park Extension to the Ordnance Triangle was built and installed by Niagara Falls, Ont.-based E.S. Fox Limited and lifted into place July 28.⠀
⠀
The bridge is located in the Liberty Village area of Toronto and is bound by two railway tracks to form a triangular shape.⠀
⠀
This will be the first 100 per cent stainless steel bridge in Canada, which has many benefits, said Steve Matthews, area manager in the structural steel and bridge division of E.S. Fox Limited.⠀
⠀
“A stainless-steel bridge will basically be maintenance free for over 100 years, you don’t have to paint it, it doesn’t rust, there is no repair work to do on it,” he said. “You don’t have to close rail lines down and interfere with trains and traffic to go do maintenance.”⠀
⠀
The general contractor on the project is Dufferin Construction and the structural engineer/designer is Pedelta Structural Engineers, a specialty bridge engineering firm based in Spain. The south span of the bridge is expected to be installed in September or October.⠀

Mammoet completed first stage of raising bridge⠀
⠀
Mammoet has successfully completed the first stage of raising a bridge in McAllen, Texas, in order to comply with new road standards and improve safety and traffic flow in the area.⠀
⠀
Plans specified that the bridge needed to be raised and Mammoet was chosen to expedite the process. Overall, Mammoet’s execution helped reduce the total disruption from four months to just four days, with crews working only overnight to minimize the inconvenience to local commuters.⠀
⠀
The jacking process is being executed in two stages, both utilizing a prebuilt, mobile jacking unit. In the first stage, the westbound lanes of the bridge were jacked up over one meter within a three-hour period to allow for new pedestals to be put in place. It was then lowered to its new permanent height, which now complies with reclassified road standards. Stage two is scheduled to take place later this year and will involve the same operation for the eastbound lanes.⠀
⠀
As specialists in the field, Mammoet optimizes civil infrastructure projects to minimize disruption and help manage project complexity, enabling clients to focus on building the physical networks that support our daily lives.⠀

Sarens in India⠀
⠀
When the Indian government decided to revive and upgrade the Ramagundam fertiliser plant, Sarens was there to help make it possible. The gas-based plant, located 240 kilometres from Hyderabad, will have the capacity to produce 11.2 lakh tonnes of urea per year once it is completed.⠀
⠀
Sarens performed the first reactor lift on behalf of Ramagundam Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited (RFCL) through EPC contractor Bridge and Roof Company Limited. To lift the reactor, the crew used the 1.600-tonne capacity CC8800-1 crane in SSL 84 & 72 configuration and the 600-tonne capacity CC2800 in SSL 54 configuration.⠀
⠀
The CC8800-1 arrived from Greece and was offloaded in the port of Mumbai before being transported to the project site by road. The Sarens team took seven days to safely assemble all of the equipment, despite constrained working space.⠀
⠀
With the cranes ready, the crew proceeded to lift the 425-tonne, 54-metre long urea reactor at a radius of 24 metres. To do it, they upended the reactor using the CC8800-1 as the main crane and the CC2800 as the tailing crane. Then, the main crane slewed and marched to erect the reactor at its location.⠀
⠀
During the operation, the team faced constant rain, a constrained area in which to work, and narrow travelling roads on the premises. Despite these challenges, the 20-member crew executed the first lift safely and on schedule.⠀
⠀
The crane will remain at the work site for another month, where it will erect five more key components, each weighing a maximum of 640 tonnes, among other heavy lift tasks.⠀
⠀
Sarens would like to congratulate everyone involved in making this first lift a success!⠀

ALE Weighs and Jacks IRP-1 in Russia⠀
⠀
The Mega Jack was utilised for this project because of its high capacity and ability to accommodate for the lack of space on worksites.⠀
⠀
As there was limited yard space available, ALE was limited with how much equipment they could have on site and needed to work closely with the client to communicate container sequence and possible storage areas around the topside.⠀
⠀
The client built the topside 3.6m high and ALE installed the Mega Jack in a configuration of four 5m x 2.5m towers, underneath the topside.⠀
⠀
The weighing operation was performed on the Mega Jack’s cylinders three times with a maximum deviation of 413 kN (42t) recorded. The topside weighed a total of 6,195t.⠀
⠀
ALE then jacked-up the complete topside in layers to 12m in just over four hours. The deck support frame (DSF) for the load-out was then installed with just 8.39m clearance.⠀
⠀
The topside was finally lowered onto the DSF, ready for the next phase involving the load-out. ALE’s Mega Jack system was loaded into containers and demobilised quickly from site to avoid any site disruptions.⠀

HANSA Heavy Lift take 2,200t carousel to Nigeria⠀
⠀
HANSA HEAVY LIFT has transported a giant carousel together with eight reels, weighing a total of 3,508.7 metric tonnes, from Newcastle, United Kingdom to Lagos, Nigeria destined for the Egina Oil Field.⠀
⠀
The voyage took place on board the super heavy lift vessel HHL Lagos, which was mobilised in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to prepare the vessel with additional deck strength for the extra-large carousel, which weighed over 2,200 metric tonnes including spooled product and had a diameter of over 25 metres.⠀
⠀
“Close connection between the HANSA HEAVY LIFT engineering, superintendents and the vessels crew allowed for a fast deck reinforcement through the installation of additional under-deck stiffeners and a spooling platform,” said Tom Kröger, Project Engineer, HANSA HEAVY LIFT.⠀
⠀
“Our in-house team of experienced naval architects carried out structural calculations to assess the structural integrity of the vessel.⠀
⠀
“The team performed structural analyses to develop a tailor-made solution accordingly with the project related requirements and designed and installed bespoke shim-plates on deck to support Saipem with the accommodation of the carousel.”⠀
⠀
Saipem in cooperation with HANSA HEAVY LIFT installed the empty carousel, which weighed 516 metric tonnes, together with the required equipment, on the vessel before sailing to Newcastle, where the cargo spooling took place.⠀
⠀
The HANSA HEAVY LIFT team worked with Saipem upon arrival at the port of Lagos to achieve double banking with Saipem offshore construction vessel NORMAND MAXIMUS to unspool the products from the carousel.⠀
⠀

Sarens in Middlesbrough⠀
⠀
Over the last seven months, Sarens has been on site at the new Manhattan Gate Bridge project in Middlesbrough, UK, lifting essential portions of the bridge into place.⠀
⠀
The £9m project is an important part of regeneration efforts at the Middlehaven Dock, and is being spearheaded by Arup and Balfour Beatty. The new three-lane bridge is expected to boost local development as well as provide another access point to the Middlesbrough Football Club's Riverside Stadium.⠀
⠀
Sarens was on site from mid-December 2017 through mid-July 2018 to execute several phases of the project.⠀
⠀
First, Sarens used a TC3200 crane in SSL configuration with 52-metre main boom and 175-tonne superlift to lift two central piers weighing 82 tonnes each. Next, Sarens deployed the LTM1500 with a 26.5-metre main boom, 35-metre luffing jib, and 165-tonne counterweight to lift 14 skirt units weighing 20 tonnes each, as well as two nose units weighing 34 tonnes each.⠀
⠀
In total, it took the team two days to rig the TC3200 and one day to rig the LTM1500. Because the work site is located near the Sarens yard, mobilising equipment to the site was convenient and fast.⠀
⠀
To ensure road access during the project, Sarens cooperated with client Balfour Beatty as well as the Middlesbrough Football Club. The project engineer, lift supervisor, and slinger all worked closely with Balfour Beatty to adhere to specific equipment procedures and policies that were well above industry standards.⠀
⠀
Sarens project engineer Phil Brothwood, a Middlesbrough football supporter, enjoyed working on this project, and collaborated very closely with the client from the moment the order was received.⠀
⠀
Both the client and Sarens are pleased with his outstanding performance!⠀

ALE Bridges Virilla River in Costa Rico⠀
⠀
In San José, Costa Rica, to double the capacity of the existing bridge from two lanes to four, ease congestion and increase the capacity of a section of the highway, ALE has used its multiple installation techniques to install a bridge over the Virilla River.⠀
⠀
As the widening of the bridge also necessitated the adaption of the water drainage works and the installation of numerous auxiliary structures, ALE needed to work closely with the client to maintain a high level of coordination. This ensured the site was prepared for ALE’s stage of the project and equipment could be installed.⠀
⠀
ALE first tilted down one of the piles, weighing 90t, using two strand jacks units of 70t capacity. Both units were mounted on a frame to support the pile of the bridge. The strand jacks were used to manoeuvre the pile until it reached the correct position.⠀
⠀
Following this, ALE skidded the deck, weighing 200t, using 90t,150t and 300t skid shoes. ALE skidded the deck, transferring the load along the abutment and supporting structure.⠀
⠀
ALE then jacked-down the pile and deck onto the bridge’s supports. Once in position, the client welded the pile to the lower surface of the deck.⠀
⠀
This was repeated for the opposite pile and deck with ALE completing the overall project in two months.⠀

ALE moves Heaviest in Saudi Arabia⠀
⠀
ALE has utilised its experience of transportation over long distances and its international branch network to transport the heaviest items ever moved in convoy through Gijon and Saudi Arabia.⠀
⠀
A total of five slug catchers will be transported internationally through built-up areas and across vast distances. In July, ALE completed the challenging transportation of the first two slug catchers, weighing 2,008t each, from Spain to Saudi Arabia, to the Fadhili Gas Program Project site.⠀
⠀
ALE first transported the slug catchers from the fabrication yard through the narrow streets of Gijon city centre to Gijon Port using 32 axle lines of SPMT and then loaded-out. ALE’s diverse experience and ability to draw on a range of equipment enabled them to negotiate this first challenging part of the route safely while in heavily congested areas.⠀
⠀
The engineering for the transportation plans was completed quickly so that ALE could begin applying for the necessary permits. As the authorities had implemented new systems,  obtaining these permits was a considerable challenge with several delays. However, ALE worked hard to maintain communications with both the Port and the Royal Commission to ensure the permits were received on time.⠀
⠀
ALE also had to work at short notice to carry out site surveys and analysis at the client’s site. It was important that the client had the information delivered swiftly so that there were enough personnel available to carry out the necessary site work before the public holidays.⠀
⠀
Upon arrival at Jubail Industrial Port, the slug catchers were loaded-in and transported 90km in convoy to the Fadhili Gas Program Project using 174 axle lines of SPMT in a configuration of 6 file 30 and 6 file 28.⠀
⠀
The three remaining slug catchers will be transported later this year during the second phase of the project.⠀

Canada’s first stainless steel bridge lifted⠀
⠀
The first span of two new bridge crossings over a busy rail corridor in Toronto was installed recently and, once complete, the Garrison Crossing pedestrian and cycle bridge will create a much-needed connection between Trinity Bellwoods Park in the north and the Fort York grounds in the south.⠀
⠀
The north span of the new all stainless-steel bridges connecting the South Stanley Park Extension to the Ordnance Triangle was built and installed by Niagara Falls, Ont.-based E.S. Fox Limited and lifted into place July 28.⠀
⠀
The bridge is located in the Liberty Village area of Toronto and is bound by two railway tracks to form a triangular shape.⠀
⠀
This will be the first 100 per cent stainless steel bridge in Canada, which has many benefits, said Steve Matthews, area manager in the structural steel and bridge division of E.S. Fox Limited.⠀
⠀
“A stainless-steel bridge will basically be maintenance free for over 100 years, you don’t have to paint it, it doesn’t rust, there is no repair work to do on it,” he said. “You don’t have to close rail lines down and interfere with trains and traffic to go do maintenance.”⠀
⠀
The general contractor on the project is Dufferin Construction and the structural engineer/designer is Pedelta Structural Engineers, a specialty bridge engineering firm based in Spain. The south span of the bridge is expected to be installed in September or October.⠀

Canada’s first stainless steel bridge lifted⠀ ⠀ The first span of two new bridge crossings over a busy rail corridor in Toronto was installed recently and, once complete, the Garrison Crossing pedestrian and cycle bridge will create a much-needed connection between Trinity Bellwoods Park in the north and the Fort York grounds in the south.⠀ ⠀ The north span of the new all stainless-steel bridges connecting the South Stanley Park Extension to the Ordnance Triangle was built and installed by Niagara Falls, Ont.-based E.S. Fox Limited and lifted into place July 28.⠀ ⠀ The bridge is located in the Liberty Village area of Toronto and is bound by two railway tracks to form a triangular shape.⠀ ⠀ This will be the first 100 per cent stainless steel bridge in Canada, which has many benefits, said Steve Matthews, area manager in the structural steel and bridge division of E.S. Fox Limited.⠀ ⠀ “A stainless-steel bridge will basically be maintenance free for over 100 years, you don’t have to paint it, it doesn’t rust, there is no repair work to do on it,” he said. “You don’t have to close rail lines down and interfere with trains and traffic to go do maintenance.”⠀ ⠀ The general contractor on the project is Dufferin Construction and the structural engineer/designer is Pedelta Structural Engineers, a specialty bridge engineering firm based in Spain.

Goldhofer moves 13 Mexican Loads⠀
⠀
Thirteen gas turbines transported 1200 kilometers through Mexico: Transportes Muciño combines »Faktor 5« and »ADDRIVE« One of the many strengths of the Goldhofer product portfolio is the almost unlimited range of combination options. A case in point was the combined use of »Faktor 5« and »ADDRIVE« acquered by the heavy haulage professionals at Transportes Muciño. Transportes Muciño was thus the first heavy haulage company in Mexico to use both a »Faktor 5« and an »ADDRIVE«.⠀
⠀
A total of 13 gas turbines weighing 186 to 289 tons were transported over a distance of more than 1100 km during the construction of 3 power plants. Among them was the new El Carmen combined cycle power plant in Nuevo Leon.⠀
⠀
The routes of the more than 1100 km was mostly on good roads, but it presented a number of challenges such as bridges to be crossed, the climb into the mountains of Cd Victoria and the steep descent to Saltillo. With the additional power available from the »ADDRIVE«, the Muciño team were able to take gradients of more than 10% in their stride. Frequent use was made of the Bluetooth synchronization feature on the »ADDRIVE« for optimum coordination with the tractor at travel speeds of up to 15 kph.⠀
⠀
As a result, the gigantic rig – some 95 m long, 6.84 m wide and around 5.3 m high – reached the various power plants without any notable problems.⠀
⠀
Since the nineties, Transportes Muciño has placed its trust in transport solutions from the house of Goldhofer. In 2016, the Mexican company took delivery of a Goldhofer »Faktor 5« high girder bridge, and that put them in a position to handle some very special heavy haulage operations. They also acquired four »ADDRIVE« units from the old-established German company so as to have a critical advantage for operations in mountainous terrain especially.⠀

OOS International – OOS Gretha placed a 120 ton accommodation module⠀
⠀
SSCV OOS Gretha, a heavy lift crane vessel of OOS International BV, successfully placed a 120 ton accommodation module onto the P-19, a Petrobras moored platform in Campos Basin, offshore Brazil.⠀
⠀
The accommodation module was initially lifted from an offshore supplier onto the deck of SSCV OOS Gretha, where it was prepared for the transfer to the P-19.⠀
⠀
On 25th of July during a short window of favorable weather conditions, the accommodation module was lifted. Whilst the OOS Gretha was in DP Ship Follow mode, the accommodation module was accurately positioned on the starboard forward corner of the P-19.⠀
⠀
Another successful lifting project completed!⠀

Collett moves transformer to Grid Link⠀
⠀
Motorist were warned of an exceptional load that was going to be transported from Ellesmere Port on the UK's North West coast to a National Grid Substation at Cellarhead near Stoke-on-Trent over 80kms away on Saturday in late July. That was the first notice that the motorist had heard of the move, but for Collett and Sons Ltd it was almost the completion of a successful project.⠀
⠀
Plans for moving the 184t transformer started early in 2018.  Liam McLoughlin, senior projects manager at Collett & Sons: “Enabling works and planning started in early 2018 for this movement. It has involved the Collett project and heavy lift departments who undertook the pre-planning works, the discharging of the transformer from the vessel at Ellesmere Port, right the way through to the delivery at the National Grid site in Cellarhead. In addition, once the transformer arrives at the substation, Collett’s heavy lift team will offload and final install the Unit to its final position on the plinth, using state of the art hydraulic jacking and skidding equipment.

Ship flies over Linz⠀
⠀
A 2t steel ‘ship’ is currently suspended above the city of Linz in Austria, to symbolise the water-themed Höhenrausch cultural project, which runs from May to October this year.⠀
⠀
It is suspended in part by a wooden tower that was originally erected in 2009 for this exhibition. The hull of the ship was lifted by mobile crane in one piece; the three masts were raised individually and then attached to the structure. Connection points (orange in colour in the photos) on the ship form the main rigging areas for the complex suspension project.⠀
⠀
The ‘ship’ is 21m long, 18m wide and ‘flies’ at around 81m, suspended in part by a wooden tower that was originally erected in 2009 for this exhibition. The hull of the ship was lifted by mobile crane in one piece; the three masts were raised individually and then attached to the structure. Connection points (orange in colour in the photos) on the ship form the main rigging areas for the complex suspension project.⠀
⠀
David Mullard of Straightpoint the suplier of the shackles said, “The load isn’t necessarily dynamic but with wind shear the loads would certainly change. Unlike many scenarios, here the load shackles are monitoring the in-situ rigging tensions during the exhibition rather than for the lifting operation itself.” The load shackles were rigged strategically to communicate data via their software package.⠀

Moving SKID over water produces beautiful images⠀
⠀
On July 30th a SKID was moved from Rotterdam Heijplaat to the port of Amsterdam. SPIE build the SKID in cooperation with Libbenga Staalbouw. The lifting work started early in the morning on the premises of Broekman Project Services, which produced beautiful images. Around noon the SKID sailed to Westpoort in Amsterdam. The SKID will be used there for a large expansion project.⠀
