After sharing their extensive experience with students in Birmingham recently, linked here, ALE will be presenting its heavylifting expertise as part of an industry seminar on cranes in Essen, Germany. Marcel Bruijs, Sales Manager, will be sharing ALE’s experience from the demolition of an overhead crane in Gent, Belgium. ALE was able to remove the crane, weighing 864t, in just 10 days using the innovative Mega Jack system, which offered a narrower solution than other alternatives and enabled the client to continue working around the Mega Jack.
The seminar on ‘Conversion, repair and modernisation of cranes and hoists’ aims to provide those in the crane industry with practical advice on the application of current regulations and safety standards.
The two-day event will be held 27th-28th March 2019 at the House of Technology in Essen, Germany, with another similar event to be held 18th-19th November 2019.
A time-lapse video of the removal of the overhead crane in Belgium is linked below.
