Choosing a Tadano CC 38.650-1 lattice boom crawler crane was a pretty easy decision for Scandinavian crane service provider Nordic Crane: “The CC 38.650-1 is an extremely well engineered and reliable crane that’s perfect for a huge range of jobs thanks to its incredible power and versatility. Whether you’re talking about industrial and infrastructure projects or erecting large wind turbines, it’s got us covered,” explains Managing Director Morten Heli-Hansen. And the crane proved him right in a roadbuilding project shortly after being handed over:
Tasked with lifting two 54-meter-long, seven-meter-wide, 135-tonne road bridges in Lysaker, next to Oslo, the crane never faltered during the job: “We configured the CC 38.650-1 with a 60-meter SSL_2 and 39.5-meter Superlift mast configuration for this assignment. Meanwhile, the counterweight was 165 plus 50 tonnes, and there were 250 tonnes on the Superlift tray. This enabled the CC 38.650-1 to easily lift the loads with a gross weight of 147 tonnes at a radius of 42 meters and then slew them into place and accurately set them down at their intended position – exactly as we’d planned,” Morten Heli-Hansen reports.
