Two UNIC Cranes Lift Steel Beams In Dubai
UNIC Cranes Europe UAE dealer, Spider Plus, recently supported Al Jaber Engineering on a project that forms part of Dubai’s Expo 2020 Metro expansion initiative. Two UNIC URW-376 mini spider cranes were commissioned to assist with the installation of steel inside the new Metro Depot in Jebel Ali.
This project involved work in confined spaces whilst lifting steel beams weighing up to 700kg each. This meant that a compact piece of lifting equipment was vital, making the UNIC URW-376 the perfect fit for this project. With a lifting capacity of 2.9 tonne and a generous lifting height of 14.9 metres, the UNIC URW-376 made easy work of this lifting challenge.
Thanks to the compact nature and manoeuvrability of the UNIC URW-376, both cranes were able to move through narrow passage ways with ease, whilst being operated alongside existing steel work, making the operating location even more confined and restricted.
The versatile nature of the UNIC URW-376 mini spider cranes, meant that the the work was able to be completed a month ahead of schedule. The planned duration of the project was 3 months, meaning that the overall saving of both time and cost was a remarkable 33%.
