Refurbishing an old Victorian sewage works when there is virtually no access for construction equipment is not the easiest of tasks, but luckily a Unic mini crane was able to rise to the challenge recently in Clydebank, Scotland.
Steel filter screens in the waterworks needed to be replaced but with no way of lifting the screens out in their entirety. The boom of the 6 tonne capacity Unic URW-706 mini crane was able to poke through the window to lift the disassembled old components out and then lift the new ones in before being reassembled.
As the sewage works are still functioning, the ten filter screens have to be replaced one at a time. It’s a time consuming process but with the Unic mini crane on board the project can be carried out as efficiently as possible to schedule.
This proves once again that when space is limited, a mini crane is the ideal solution for the job at hand!
