Our 4 tonne capacity Unic URW-547 mini spider crane was used to precisely position the granite pieces of the memorial together on this restricted access area of coastline 450 feet above the English Channel. A crowd of spectators watched GGR’s team of expert operators as they carefully lifted the two sections into position on a central plinth.
An RAF Chinook helicopter was used to transport the stone loads and Unic mini crane from nearby Beachy Head Road to the memorial’s final location on the cliff edge
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.
