Wolff takes central role

By Euan Youdale27 August 2010

A Wolff 6015.8clear is at work in Füssen, Germany on the extension of the inner-city Schöll hotel.

As the construction site offers no storage space, an innovative solution needed to be found to convey the prefabricated concrete elements.

"A notable feature of this crane is its tower system, which has a cross-sectional dimension of just 1.5 m," said Peter Völker, managing director and owner of the operating company Kranprofis Allgäu GmbH. "This enabled us to erect the construction crane without difficulty within the narrow 1.7 x 2 m elevator shaft."

The crane was configured with a load capacity of 1.5 tonnes at a jib length of 60 m, and 8.5 tonnes to 14.8 m. It is due to be removed from the site in December. "The only thing left to do will be the roof, and then the project will be complete," said Völker.
