Pictured Page & Macrae work to remove the old Hospital Chimney. In yellow is our 50 Tonne - Grove GMK3050 and in blue is our 170 Tonne Crane a Grove GMK5170. This was the first section of 4 lifts. The last occurring on the 20th June.
We had the opportunity to help out Brunel Construction today. Here our 50 Tonne Crane a Grove GMK3050 places panels cast off site on a portable heated panel bed.
Time to move in at Cayman Apartments - As CBC Construction finish the final touches residents start to move in those larger items.
Pictured the team at J.J. Niven Engineering Ltd place one of the new Gantry cranes at Steel and Tube, Tauranga. The GMK3050-1 our 50 Tonne Grove was used inside to place the cranes in position. Outside our GMK5130, 130 Tonne Grove was used to raise the cranes to the roof. Each crane weighed in at 12 Tonnes.
Today we had the chance to lower Addictive (Grant Smith) and Rayglass (Kelly Smith) into the water for the Superboat light class. It was great to have the opportunity to to see these boats up close before racing. I have to say the name Addictive really suits the boat. The sport looks a tonne of fun! I'm really looking forward to seeing them back again in Tauranga. Check out the New Zealand Offshore Powerboad Association website under Team Profiles Superboat Light.
This work site is a great example of what you can do with the Grove All Terrain Cranes. Here you see the GMK3050 our 55 Tonne all terrain crane in action. The ute is parked on the access driveway which Brian our crane operator was required to back down and around into place. Something he made look really simple. In this picture you can see him lifting a tilt-panel as an eight point lift.
