A crane massive enough to lift a fully-loaded aircraft. That’s massive.
This 70-ton gantry crane is nearing completion. Designed by our structural division, It’ll be used by our North Carolina client to maintain turbines and other equipment used in the generation of electricity.
To give you some idea of the scale of this giant—the rails that hold the legs are 62 feet apart. The gantry is 67 feet tall. It has a hoist capacity of 140,000 pounds, which is the maximum takeoff weight of a Boeing MD-80 aircraft.
