Sarens has completed the installation of a 220-tonne boiler module at a 1266MW combined cycle power plant in Khenchela, Algeria. The operation, completed on behalf of client Etterkib, involved the following equipment:

    •    Demag CC2800-1

    •    Demag CC2400-1

    •    Demag AC259


The equipment was selected to handle the significant weight of the 220-tonne, 37-metre long module, and to accommodate the need for rotating movements and verticalisation. The CC2800-1 crane was transported to the work site directly from another project, and it took a total of three days to set up the equipment.

At the project’s peak, Sarens crew included a project engineer, lifting supervisor, three crane operators, a crane assembler, and riggers. Sarens would like to thank them for their contributions to this important operation!
