October 29 - Heavy lifting equipment manufacturer Enerpac has begun transporting the beams for the world's largest offshore gantry crane from Hengelo, the Netherlands, to the Crist shipyard in Poland.

Four beams, each weighing 72 tonnes, will form part of the over head travel crane (OHTC) that will be used to build an offshore highway bridge on Reunion Island.  The crane is composed of two pairs of lifting beams with an overall width of 30 m and a lifting capacity of 4,800 tonnes.
