Heavy-lift firm Berard has transported and installed six port container cranes at the Port of Virginia.
The project marked the first of 86 cranes that will be delivered to the site, and a team from Berard handled the transport using 16 axle-lines of self-propelled modular trailers and a 275-tonne Terex crawler crane. The cranes were shipped in a collapsed width position for shipping before transfer to rail at the site.
“Berard team members lifted one side of the crane, extended the leg to its permanent width and lowered onto the rail,” a Berard team spokesperson said.
Headquartered in New Iberia, Louisiana Berard provides a range of services throughout the southern U.S. for heavy-lift and super heavy transport. SOURCE: BreakBulk
