The mightiest of the world’s mini cranes, the UNIC URW-1006, has been called upon to help with a very tall order, replacing 9m long fins on a 24m high wind turbine named, Grace Kelly.
All of the turbines manufactured by wind turbine specialists DC21 Group are given names; living just along the road from Grace is “Rita Hayworth” who reigns over the English countryside.
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.
