Danish crane rental house Krangården was contracted by EWP from MalmÖ in Sweden to handle foundation and tower parts for a 5 MW Enercon wind turbine. Part of the job was to lift the 375 tonne upper part while the lower section was skidded underneath.

Four cranes were used for the job, sourced from companies in the BMS group: a 450 tonne capacity Grove GMK7450 from Krangården; a 400 tonne Liebherr LTM 1400 from BMS; a 300 tonne Liebherr LTM 1300 from BMS; and a 300 tonne Grove GMK 6300 from KranRingen.

A 200 tonne lifting yoke was used between the two larger cranes, requiring longer booms than for the two 300 tonners on the other side.
