Crane Institute of America

Creative Solution to a Difficult Job

Grupo Noroccidental, a South American transport company, found a creative solution in placing girders for a replacement bridge.

As seen in the video, one telescoping boom crane holds one end of the girder while the other end is placed on a truck and driven around a curve. Once near the final position, a second telescoping boom crane, picks up the end from the truck and the two cranes simultaneously lift the girder and place it on the prepared abutment.
