Mammoet Releases Focus Details (23-09-2019)
Dutch international heavy crane and transport group Mammoet has released more details of its Focus crane concept, with an animated video showing just how it is intended to work.
The company floated the idea for the new crane back in 2016, suggesting at that time that it might be scaled up to a maximum capacity of 24,000 tonnes. The idea is that the crane can almost set up within its overall footprint. Saving a huge amount of space and disruption, making it ideal for congested spaces, such as plants and inner cities.
Production of the first Focus crane is now underway, with completion expected during the second quarter of next year. He is the video animation which clearly shows how the new concept works)
The animation also shows how the crane’s superstructure is placed on a pedestal. That helps improve stability, while lowering ground bearing pressures to less than 10 tonnes per square metre on a surface of just 30 metres square. The variable super lift suspended counterweight has a tail radius that can be adjusted under load from 16 to 30 metres.
Jacques Stoof, director of innovation and market development said: “The animation shows how the main boom is erected vertically with the help of a climbing frame. Once the main boom is in place, the back mast can be installed vertically as well. This eliminates the need to sterilise larger parts of a plant area for crane assembly. Neither is there any more need to build over live pipe racks. All in all, the assembly process is less complex, safer and more efficient, and significantly reduces the costly area and downtime of assembling a crane.”
“The Focus will set a new standard of heavy lifting in confined spaces. The design that we demonstrate in this animation is based on numerous discussions with our customers in which we gained a good understanding of their current and future challenges. The Focus is a direct response to their need for greater lifting capacity and flexibility within limited and congested spaces. This innovation is a cost saving solution for many of our customers within the power, petrochemical and civil sectors.”
Apartment Built Using Tilt-Up Technique (19-09-2019)
Canadian construction company Tilt Wall Ontario, which specialises in the tilt-up construction technique, has built a new apartment block using the technique at the luxury Muskoka Bay Resort in Ontario, Canada.
The tilt-up construction technique is where concrete panels are cast either on or off-site and then hoisted up and tilted into position. These panels then become the building’s load-bearing structural components, eliminating the need for perimeter columns.
The Muskoka Bay Resort apartment building was constructed using 381 precast tilt-up concrete panels. The panels’ width ranged from 1.5m (5ft) to over 18m (60ft) with weights between one tonne (3,000lb) to 58 tonnes (128,000lb). These formed a five storey multi-unit residential apartment with a sixth storey on three stair towers.
To lift the precast panels into position Canadian construction specialist Surespan provided crane services. Surespan utilised its 750 tonne capacity Liebherr LG 1750 lattice boom mobile crane, with a 350 tonne capacity mobile crane as an assist crane.
Tilt Wall Ontario also sourced the spreader beams to facilitate the lifting of the panels. For this it turned to Canadian equipment sales and rental company Equipment Corps which supplied two modular spreader beams from UK-headquartered spreader and lifting beam manufacturer Modulift: the MOD 50 and MOD 110. They were used to even the load distribution and to facilitate proper angles on the lifting slings and hardware.
Tilt Wall Ontario project manager Ken VanCasteren elaborated, “We utilised two different sized beams and, between the two, they were used for about 80 to 85 per cent of the picks. We did not adjust the lengths of the beams during the lifting process but instead used the two different beam sizes to allow for quicker rigging changes. For the MOD 110 we used an eight-point pick for load distribution and on the MOD 50 we used a four-point lifting setup.”
The LG 1750 lifted the panels horizontally to the required height and then tilted them upright into place by sliding the wire rope links through the snatch blocks attached to the spreader beam. According to Modulift, the spreader beams are designed to be particularly stable and trusted for this type of manoeuvre and are compatible with snatch blocks. The Tilt Wall Ontario team then braced the panels until the permanent structural connections were completed.
Ken VanCasteren added, “It was a pleasure to work with Equipment Corps on this project. When issues or concerns came up regarding the loading and safe working loads of the rigging on some of the heavier lifts, Equipment Corps was quick to respond and review all of the loading calculations to ensure everything was rated properly. The Modulift beams were versatile and easy to get the required spreads needed. The beams assembled easily and were user friendly throughout the project duration.”
Liebherr LR 1600-2 Inside Giant Cooling Tower (19-09-2019)
A Liebherr LR 1600/2 crawler crane was in action completing modification work in one of the cooling towers at Weisweiler power plant in North Rhine- Westphalia. Crane and heavy haulage logistics contractor Wasel based in Bergheim near Cologne received an order to replace parts of the pipework system over the top edge of the massive cooling tower. The crane was erected with an impressive roller head height of 182 metres to carry out this job.
Three days and 54 low loader journeys were required to erect the enormous crawler crane between the two cooling towers at the lignite power plant. Set up with its main 102 meter boom and a 78 meter luffing fly jib, the Liebherr crane hoisted the glass fiber-reinforced plastic components weighing up to 12 tonnes out of the power plant’s 117 meter high tower. The LR 1600/2 had to handle radii of up to 61 meters in the process. In fact, the Liebherr crawler crane required around half of the total of 525 tonnes of ballast used for the job just to raise and lower its impressively long lattice boom. The pallet with the suspended ballast was generally not required for the actual crane work. An additional 60 tonnes of ballast were used on the derrick boom for hoists involving a large radius.
There was no alternative to using the route over the opening in the internally hollow concrete body to replace the awkward components that make up the clean gas pipework. It was not possible to replace the pipe components using the only access point to the tower at a height of around ten meters as a result of their massive dimensions.
