Our compact and transportable UNIC mini spider cranes are taken to all sorts of lifting locations, but this UNIC URW-706 crane has surely gone to one of the most spectacular spots around as it sits at the very top of The Shard.
As one of the strongest spider cranes on the market, GGR’s 6 tonne capacity UNIC URW-706 mini crane is proving more and more popular for taking on heavy duty lifting operations both in the UK and in Europe. Nuclear site management contractor Magnox has recently purchased a URW-706 spider crane to assist in its site management projects.
One of GGR’s mini crawler cranes was used to erect a wind turbine high up in the Pennines of Lancashire. The MCC805 was tasked with installing the mammoth 18.6m high turbine. The wind turbines, manufactured in Yorkshire, are making waves in the field of sustainable energy. Each one is capable of powering twenty domestic houses at maximum power output of 60kw.
A UNIC URW-1006 mini crane has been hired from GGR to install an external fire escape staircase at Velocity Village, Sheffield. Before it could start work the world’s strongest mini crane had to be lifted into position, over a balustrade by a hiab.
A pair of GGR’s mini spider cranes teamed up to carry out a tricky tandem lift at Westfield’s White City Shopping Centre. The dynamic lifting duo was made up of two URW-706 mini spider cranes. As part of the Phase 2 development of the huge shopping centre the escalators had to be removed and then re-installed at a new position.
GGR Group’s Hydraulica 4000 Quad-Circuit has been put to work on its toughest job yet. This vacuum lifter has a four tonne lifting capacity, making it the perfect machine to meet the growing demand for ever larger glass in the construction industry.
One of GGR Group’s mini crawler cranes has been used to install a new, modern entrance and play area at Soho’s Parish School. The school redevelopment programme is the culmination of three years of fundraising and GGR are delighted to have helped contractor Jane’s Pond to complete the project. The new play area is made up of eight cubes each weighing up to a tonne; the mini telescopic crawler made light work of lifting and installing the cubes. Its 2.35m wide base and solid tracks provide it with the stability to lift and travel with loads up to 2 tonnes in weight.
A G20 Pick and Carry Crane and MRTA611 Vacuum Lifter teamed up to install a sound barrier at Allerton South Railway Depot. The reflective acoustic cladding panels are designed to attach to existing walls and structures to reduce environmental noise pollution.
The smallest of GGR’s pick and carry cranes, the 2 tonne capacity G20, was hired to lift an 850kg pig at a National Grid facility in Kendal recently. This wasn’t a hefty porker of the animal variety, but a mechanical cleaning pig which is used for essential gas pipeline maintenance.
Here’s an article from the Ministry of Defence’s Desider magazine about how UNIC mini cranes are being used to carry out repair and maintenance work on Chinook helicopters in Afghanistan and back in the UK…
