This great shot shows a specially modified 2000 kg Scanclimber SC2032F being used on the construction of a new cooling tower at the Neurath Power Plant in Germany. Contractor Wiemer & Trachte used the hoist to transport materials and passengers during the concrete slip-forming operations. To adapt to the concave shape – the tower to the concave shape – the tower hasa 108 m diameter at the base nd 69 m at the top – 'distance sheeves' were installed between the 1.5 m long mast sections, and the distance between anchors was reduced to 12 m from the normal 21 m. Cableguides also had to be modified with special rollers to minimise the cable tension.
