One of the problems with large cranes is the difficulty of transporting them from site to site. Complete containerisation is now seen as a solution, and in this video we see the world's first containerised crane - with a lift capacity of 2,000 tonnes - transported from Rotterdam to New Brunswick, Canada. At a petrochemical site, it is reassembled and begins its lifting duties. A second feature shows an industrial vessel transported on SPMTs through night-time Bratislava, Slovakia. It is then lifted by a hydraulically operated 3,000-tonne-lift crane whose counterweight is made of transport containers that are filled with locally available materials. High in the Austrian Alps, a dredger, barge and associated equipment are transported by road to a dam reservoir 2,200 metres up at the foot of the Gross Glockner mountain. This is demanding terrain for the truck combinations and their drivers. Finally, a brick-built factory recreation room is moved in one piece for preservation in Groningen, Holland. New steel H-beams are placed under the building which is then hoisted on to SPMTs for transport.show more
