Sarens Assembles and Installs Bridge in the UK
With limited access to site, Sarens deploys CC2800-1 to lift and install bridge in Bristol, the UK
December 2020

Victor Buyck commissioned Sarens to build and install a bridge in Bath, Bristol – the city of bridges. Sarens supplied small mobile cranes to build the bridge starting April 2020. 

Once built, the bridge had to be installed but the installation site had a limited space available for a crane to operate. Sarens’ team deployed CC2800-1 in SSL configuration with 84m main boom and 300T superlift. 

The deliveries of crane parts had to be planned in detail in order to assemble the crane in the available space. 

The bridge section to be lifted weighed 74T and the CC2800-1 lifted the bridge section at a radius of 62m. 

Senior Sales Manager, Simon Crawley says, “The limited space at site was a challenge but we as solution providers managed to overcome them and offer a solution that was apt as well as readily available.” He adds, “Our Engineering department delivered meticulously designed plan which satisfied the client before the actual lift took place.  Finally our rigging / lifting team safely installed the bridge section with zero harm and zero incident.”
