Fatal Tower Crane Collapse (23-01-2019)
A luffing jib tower crane collapsed earlier today at a high rise site in Bangkok, Thailand, killing four and injuring five others.
The incident occurred at the Lumpini Park Riverside project, on Rama III road, in central Bangkok, where two apartment blocks are being built by LPN Development. The superstructure of one of the two cranes on the project broke away from its tower and dropped to the ground, striking the fifth floor on the way killing two men working there, then landed on the second floor where another two died. At least five others are reported to be seriously injured.

The incident is under investigation and at this stage we have no further information. We will update if and when we learn more.
Germany-based international crane service provider Neeb used its Demag AC 500-8, manufactured by Terex Cranes, to lift girders over a motorway near Cologne, Germany, as part of the expansion of a bridge crossing the motorway.
According to Terex, restricted space was the first challenge for Neeb, which is why it opted to use its AC 500-8 – which handled all lifts in its base configuration compared to a smaller crane which would have had to be setup in its full configuration.
The crane arrived at the site accompanied by four trucks carrying its counterweight and accessories. Due to the lack of space, set up was awkward said Need. “As there were shaft construction structures and precast components from other construction companies there already, we had very little space to work with,” explained Dirk Salzer, project manager at Neeb. “That meant that we had to place the counterweight trucks on the opposite lane and then set up the crane from across the road and the guardrail.”
Terex said it took three Neeb assembly technicians one-and-a-half hours to configure the Demag AC 500-8 with a 37.9 metre main boom and 120 tonnes of counterweight.

The crane was used to carry out eight main lifts, each hoisting a 37-metre-long, 51-tonne steel girder for the bridge. The restricted space again meant that, like the counterweight, the crane had to reach over the guardrail to unload the steel girders from the dolly-type trailers they had been transported on.
According to Terex, the lifts themselves required a high level of accuracy. Achieving this was made even more awkward as the bridge crosses the motorway at an angle of 80 degrees. In addition, the crane had to be repositioned once between the lifts without encroaching on the neighbouring Leverkusen bridge.
The lifts were completed successfully by two crane operators in 48-hour window one weekend.
450t Liebherr For German Crane Rental Company (19-01-2019)
German crane rental company Franz Bracht Kran-Vermietung has taken delivery of a 450 tonne Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1 All Terrain crane.
The eight axle LTM 1450-8.1 can travel complete with its 85 metre main boom within 12 tonne axle loads, and can lift 20 tonnes on the fully extended boom. It went straight out on a job erecting a Liebherr 172 EC-B Litronic flat top tower crane at a cement plant in Erwitte, north western Germany.
Owner Dirk Bracht said: “Not only do we save time because we don’t have to do add a lattice jib, but we don’t even have to transport it to the site. Moreover, we don’t need a setup crane to install it on the telescopic boom. This means significant savings in time and cost for erecting and dismantling tower cranes.”

“The LTM 1450-8.1 is the most innovative crane in its class. We mainly use it to erect tower cranes, but it also carries out work at chemical plants and refineries. Since those sites are often very constricted, VarioBase and VarioBallast are very valuable functions. Furthermore, the crane will also be used at bridge construction sites which often involve two 500 tonne telescopic cranes working together. This is because the LTM 1450-8.1 can replace a 500 tonne crane as a result of its very good close in lifting capacity values.”
Established in 1964, Franz Bracht is based in Erwitte and operates from a number of locations in North Rhine-Westphalia. The company employs 740, and its fleet includes around 250 cranes with capacities ranging between seven and 1,600 tonnes. It also provides heavy haulage services, and has 200 aerial work platforms available for rental through its Hofmann Kranvermietung subsidiary.
