Great pictures by the Foreman Scotty of the New - New World coming together on the corner of Maunganui Rd and Tweed Street. Pictured from left to right is the 16 Tonne Crane (Nippy) lifting in steel work, 10 Tonne Crane (Little Toot) providing mancage support to the 80 Tonne Crane (Awesome) on the right lifting in the large concrete panels.
I thought I better post something to give people an idea of the sort of thing Peter gets up to. I wouldn't be too keen to see what this looks like on a rough day at sea.
Here we have Peter McLeod standing in front of one of the hooks on Saipem 7000. They don't get much bigger than this (7000 Tonne Capacity). The spreader bar in the background puts our little ones here in the yard to shame.
Latest picture from Peter McLeod. Peter is currently working on Saipem 7000 as a Structual Installation Engineer. Awesome pictures Peter - Keep them coming.
From the crane here you can see the 32 metre reach with the 8 tonne panel just been placed on site. In using the 130 the client was able to have the crane remain in one position through out the job placing each panel straight from the trucks one after another as they arrived with no delays.
Here you can see the 130 Tonne Crane stretching out 32 metres to place an 8 tonne panel. Great reach. I'll have to look for one like this will all 60 metres of boom out.
The 130 Tonne Crane made a brief appearance at the Power Crane Conference in Rotorua allowing members to see the latest technology in the GMK-5130
