Enerpac gantry heads to Reunion

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. Further information on the project, as reported by HLPFI on September 18, can be read here.

The OHTC will be installed aboard a heavy lift jack-up barge to complete construction works, which is being undertaken by a French consortium of Bouygues Travaux Publics, VINCI Construction Grands Projets, Dodin Campenon Bernard and Demathieu Bard Construction.
