Sennebogen Crawler Cranes Boosting Cannes Coastal Protection – Videos

The Port of Cannes has been carrying out renovation and reinforcement work on the Laubeuf and du Large seawalls since 2018: it is a major construction project for both the port and the City of Cannes. The main objective of this renovation work is to provide people and infrastructure with long-term protection against severe wave action, in harmony with the environment. Thereby flexible in use for lifting and pick & carry tasks: the SENNEBOGEN 653 E and 6113 E telescopic crawler cranes.

When you think of Cannes, you think of film festivals, the Croisette and the marina. But Cannes also has to deal with everyday problems for coastal cities, such as storm tides, like at the Quai Laubeuf and Quai du Large. Therefore, extensive renovation and reinforcement works are taking place in the port of Cannes. The several involved contractors responsible for the lifting work on the construction site, consisting of a joint venture driven by TD Spada of Campenon Bernard / Group Vinci, Razel-Bec / Group Fayat and Negri, decided to use two SENNEBOGEN telescopic crawler cranes: a 50 t crane and a 120 t crane will lift and move the loads along the promenade, both supplied by sales and service partner SYGMAT.

The current protective armour (consisting of natural riprap) will be replaced by a protective armour composed of artificial concrete blocks, more precisely by 4 m3 accropodes made at Cannes la Bocca. The SENNEBOGEN 6113 E, rented out by ENCO, is handling and positioning the concrete blocks underwater. Two main reasons for choosing the 120 t telescopic crawler crane from SENNEBOGEN: its precise and smooth command system to adjust the blocks safely close to the divers and with constant sea currents, and the capability for the crane to be quickly in transport position and to go away from the dangerous sea-side when the weather changes soon and the waves are growing very fast during winter time. With a lifting capacity of 120 t, the powerful SENNEBOGEN 6113 E telescopic crawler crane is the ideal support for customers in the construction industry and crane rental. It shows its advantages particularly when lifting, moving and positioning large loads.
