Last week we had the mission to remove a bent crane boom off Nordic Visby. Below are some of the pictures we took of the work with Page Macrae Engineering.
130t Crane in the distance and 170t Crane pictured lifting Tranquil Image onto the hard for some annual maintenance.
Thanks to everyone who supported us in the 2010 Christmas Parades. We had a huge amount of fun in both the Te Puke and Mount Parades. We even managed a 1st Place in Te Puke which was just outstanding!! Check out the photos in the Bay of Plenty Times.
Pictured McLeod Cranes GMK5130 Lofty our 130 Tonne Crane lifts a large Crystaliser into place for Dominion Salt
It's been a busy week for the GMK5170 Maximus. With two big lifts see below for a run down of what we have been up to including footage from our new boom cam.
Yesterday McLeod Cranes lifted Oracle back into the water and what a change from when we lifted it out. This is going to be one awesome vessel to fish from when they finish those final touches. The Oracle team and Hutcheson Boats have done a great job and were a great group to work with making for a smooth lift.
SunLive were on the scene early this morning to catch us lift a House over a House. Read the full story on their website SunLive.co.nz.
Well its been a busy week with Fletcher Construction placing the last beam on The NZ Transport Agency Harbour Link Project. Peter McLeod our structural engineer has had his hands full working closely with engineer Gareth Hole from Fletchers planning a very technically complex lift. Maximus (GMK5170) and Lofty (GMK5130) operated by Justin Martin with very short outriggers to place a 70 Tonne Steel Beam with the help of Roy Ogle dogging it gently into place. You can read the full story on SunLive or at the Bay of Plenty Times websites. "It will be quite an engineering feat," Harbour Link project manager Kevin Reid said.
Pictured Lofty our GMK5130 works at Eleven as it gets closer to completion at the hands of Marra Construction. It is a awesome structure Marra have completed here with two towers, roof top pools and amazing views. Well worth a look if you're in the Mt Maunganui Apartment Market.
