By Katherine Weir12 August 2016
Russia-based heavy construction company Mostotrest put a Sennebogen 3300 crawler crane to work on a bridge construction project in Moscow. A multi-lane urban highway is one of many large infrastructure projects underway in the capital.
Mostotrest, which specializes in bridge and road construction, used the 120 tonne capacity 3300 for several lifting tasks and as a pick and carry crane. During the three year construction period, the crawler lifted hundreds of precast concrete parts.
The highway is elevated on stilts and is to relieve the existing road network. In the future, traffic is intended to roll into the city on several road levels, the company said. The concept includes grade-separated exits as well as the expansion of the Moscow Ring Road. The entire reinforced concrete structure will have a road length of more than 3,000 metres, including all exits.
In addition, the company said there is a lot of supporting and foundation work to get the Molodogvardeiskaya expressway into shape for the future.
The 3300, which was delivered by service partner Kwintmadi, is equipped with a 48 m main and fly boom with a working height up to 74 m. It has a 186 kilowatt diesel engine that drives the two 120 kilonewton winches. The machine has a pick and carry capacity under load, the company said.
