Dismantling of a 140t Gantry Crane - Dragages Bouygues JV XRL 820 site
Alatas Hong Kong were contracted to dismantle a 140t gantry crane that was no longer needed. This was a Chinese brand of crane that we had not installed and as a result, there were a number of unknown factors and restrictions including:
Limited information and drawings
Restricted space on the job site
An adjacent very busy main road
Many tasks that required working at height
Complex rigging and tandem lifting operations
These all had to be carefully considered for our service plan, risk assessments and lifting plans.
The diligent planning and execution meant that the project was completed on time and safely. Alatas Hong Kong received a commendation from the MTR for the way in which our safe working practices were apparent throughout the project.
