Sarens has installed part of the Al Bayt stadium’s retractable roof in Qatar as part of the ongoing preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
To complete the tandem lift, Sarens utilised two crawler cranes – a 1,250-tonne capacity CC 6800 and a 750-tonne capacity LR 1750.
The main challenge of the project, completed on behalf of construction contractor Cimolai, was mobilising the equipment, said Sarens. Qatar’s World Cup Supreme Committee helped clear the crane through Customs.
While the LR 1750 was already on site, the CC 6800 had to be shipped from Germany, with parts of the crane configuration being shipped from Croatia.
