Galizia crane of choice at Milan Cathedral

04 January 2010

An electric self-propelled yard crane manufactured by Italy-based Galizia is carrying out a range of duties at Milan Cathedral.

The G90 was acquired by Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo di Milano, which built and maintains the cathedral, along with the works of art inside.

The crane will be based in the workshop and building yard loading and unloading trucks. It will also assist in the laying of marble slabs and move works of art and building material.

The G90 has been equipped with a hydraulic telescopic jib, controlled using a joystick. Lifting capacity is 600 kg to a height of 15.5 m. This configuration will soon be used to mount paintings portraying the life of Italian saint and cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church San Carlo Borromeo.

Another feature of the crane is its 180° steering range, adds Galicia, as well as its anti-trace wheels which prevent damage to the Cathedral floor.
