Two UNIC mini spider cranes made a big impression on the set of blockbuster movie “Noah” when it was being filmed by director Darren Aronofsky near Reykjavik, Iceland. These behind-the-scenes lifting machines were on hire from UNIC’s Icelandic dealer Smákranar to help film inside the Raufarhólshellir lava stream cave.
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.
