Heavy Lift Across the World

Alistair delivers in East Africa

Tanzania-headquartered Alistair Group has completed the delivery of a 130-tonne lift capacity Grove crane from Mtwara to Tanga, Tanzania.

Due to the size and weight of the unit, as well as road restrictions, the crane was dismantled and loaded onto three separate vehicles for delivery to Tanga. The main unit was loaded onto a lowbed trailer; the boom, counterweight and tyres were loaded on tri-axles.

The height on the combination could not exceed 4.7 m due to bridges in Tanga and no alternative route to the final project site. 

In a separate project, Alistair Group's Mozambique division has commenced delivery of heavy construction equipment, containers and accessories from Nacala to Afungi-Palma. In total, 31 loads will be delivered to Afungi-Palma.
