Bigge hoists led to a bridge over troubled waters

June 18 - Bigge Crane and Rigging's crane rental division was contracted to lay girders on a construction project to widen the American River Bridge at Sacramento, California.

Bigge utilised two Liebherr LTM 1220 all-terrain cranes, each with a lift capacity of 265 tonnes, to hoist the girders that support the bridge into place.

Operating over 30 m above the American River, Bigge lifted and placed 16 girders, each approximately 40 m feet long and weighing over 80 tonnes. 

The bridge was closed for just one weekend to allow work to be completed.
