Integrated Logistics Company (ILC) has transported pre-assembled concrete supports for the Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Al Sabah causeway project in Kuwait.
The project will see the construction of a 36 km long road, including a bridge over the Kuwait Bay, which boasts a length of 27 km.
For the construction of the bridge, ILC transported the concrete supports to a construction site near Sabiya.
ILC utilised two of its Demag AC 300-6 all-terrain cranes to lift the components from a hydraulic lowbed trailer, fitted with a turntable system, and place them on to pre-planned positions.
The steel-reinforced concrete sections weighed 105 tonnes each, and measured approximately 37 m in length.
For the tandem lift, the cranes were rigged with 24.4 m-long main booms, a counterweight of 26.7 tonnes, and an 80-tonne hook block with seven-part reeving. An outrigger support base of 8.68 m x 8.48 m provided the required stability, said Terex.
