Eagle West Cranes 120 Ton Mobile Crane Hoists Scaffold

Covanta Burnaby Renewable Energy Inc and Eagle West Cranes (a division of TNT Crane & Rigging Inc.) partnered on a recent project in Burnaby, BC. Covanta needed to hoist bundles of scaffolding up 140′ to the roof of the building. Since the access to the building edge was limited, Eagle West Cranes dispatched their 120 Ton Leibherr Crane to service the project.

The crane set up required Eagle West Cranes to configure the 120 Leibherr mobile crane with 81,570 lbs of counterweight and the 62′ of jib in order to clear the roofs edge and place the scaffold on the correct portion of the roof.

Each bundle of scaffold only weighed in at 3000 lbs per bundle but because of the building access and the height of the roof, it definitely added an element of challenge for the Eagle West Team!

The job went smoothly and the lift plan organized by the Eagle West Cranes team helped the project go off without a hitch.
