LGH supplies gantry system for bridge lift

Heavy lift equipment rental company LGH has supplied an Enerpac telescopic hydraulic gantry to assist with the removal of the Steenhuisenbrug bridge in Friesland, the Netherlands.

The Steenhuisenbrug bridge is being refurbished and temporarily replaced with an emergency bridge for pedestrians. Located in a congested residential area, LGH’s customer was unable to deploy a mobile crane for the project due to the limited available space.

To overcome this, the Enerpac SL100 gantry was mounted on a pontoon either side of the bridge deck in order to lift the 48-tonne structure.

The pontoon then moved the deck 100 m along the waterway where it was lifted onto nearby land for refurbishment.
