Tight turns from Ormig

11 April 2011

Two Ormig pick-and-carry cranes have been demonstrating some of their key attributes in a confined indoor space.

The 25 tonne capacity mod.10tmEs lifted and positionned tanks weighing 9 tonnes and measuring 9 m length at an Italy-based facility.

Careful planning was required to place the tanks on two beams set 5 m apart, explained Ormig's Gian Paolo Aschero.

An articulated loader crane was used to support one end of each vessel once they had been placed onto a beam. The mod.10tmE then lifted the other end of the vessels on to the parralel beam.

"The features and performances of the Ormig cranes has allowed ease of operation in a very confined space with total safety," added Aschero.

The work was carried out by Nonantola, near Modena, Italy.
