Project Overview

West Gate Freeway Tunnel Project

CHALLENGES: 27 Tonne bridge beam installation with High Voltage Power Lines in close proximity.

OUTCOMES: A large scale client consult, backed by the knowledge of our team, Premier packaged a detailed solution for this Install. The directive involved precise calculations for the crane set up, a total of almost 30 sq metres of bog mats offsetting 116kPa ground pressure. Weighing careful consideration to site delivery locations with valuable and dangerous services in close proximity. 20T Soft Slings, 35T Shackles, and a 30T Equalising Triangle are just a snapshot of utilised rigging equipment. This giant venture is continually advancing and evolving, and at Premier Cranes, our resolution is to adapt and deliver the same.
