Three-crane lift for German bridge
Some German/Dutch/Belgian co-operation was needed to lift this 1200-tonne bridge into place in August 2013. The 120m-long bridge was lifted by three big Terex crawler cranes onto 20m-high piers to carry the the A23 motorway between Hamburg and Heide in north Germany.
Lifting contractor Sarens set up a Terex CC 6800 on one side of the river bank to take 600 tonnes of the bridge’s weight. On the other side, local crane hire firm Ulferts & Wittrock set up its new Terex Superlift 3800 (650-tonne class) and Dutch firm Wagenborg set up a CC 2500-1 (500-tonne), with each taking 300 tonnes of the load.
