UNIC Mini Spider Crane Soars at 1798 Metres

URW-295 over Vierwaldstättersee LuzernA UNIC mini spider crane was recently commissioned to operate on top of a 96-metre-high transmitter mast, at the summit of the 1798-metre-high Mount Rigi in Switzerland. The only way up was by helicopter.

Transmitter masts are often erected in extremely isolated, restricted access areas, but this wasn’t a problem for the lightweight and compact UNIC URW-295 mini spider crane.

Once flown to the top of the mountain, the mini crane had to sit on the edge of transmitter to install a new platform to the mast, so that new satellite dishes for telecommunications could be installed.

Selected for its small footprint, flexible outriggers and practical radio remote control, the UNIC URW-295 mini spider crane was able to work in an extremely restricted lifting area. With a width of just 0.6m and heavy lifting capacity of 2.9 tonnes, the mini, yet mighty UNIC URW-295 was able to lift, place and install the new platform with ultimate precision.

Graeme Riley, CEO of UNIC Cranes Europe said “Remote and hard to access areas are ideal for UNIC spider cranes. These mini, light weight machines are perfect for projects of this kind where the only access is by helicopter.

The small foot print and heavy lifting power of the UNIC URW-295 made it the natural option for this complex lifting operation”.
