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. Ten UNIC spider cranes purchased as an Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR) have been providing vital support to the MOD’s Chinook helicopter fleet in Camp Bastion, Afghanistan and RAF Odiham, Hampshire.
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.
