A New Krøll K1800 tower crane has been commissioned by Jay Dee Contractors, Inc. of Livonia, Michigan in the USA to help construct a US$ 158 million transit station and tunnel project in Seattle, Washington.

This unusual application for such a large tower crane was calculated to be the ideal solution for this project, explained Terry McGettigan of Tower Crane Support, who located and consulted on the K1800.

Rigged with a hook height of 104 feet (32 m) and 250 feet (76 m) of jib, the Krøll K1800 has a capacity of 133,277 pounds (60 tonnes) out to a radius of 83 feet (25 m) and, at 246 feet (75 m), it can lift 33,070 pounds (15 tonnes).

Erection is scheduled for December 2010.
