Sarens lifts 210t roof in Poland

18 August 2020


Sarens used a Demag CC 3800-1 crawler crane to lift a 210t roof onto a new diesel storage tank at the PERN fuel depot in Koluszki, Poland.

The CC 3800-1 met all requirements for lifting operations, including lifting capacity and working radius. It was brought in from a previous project in Lithuania, with transport and unloading lasting about a week. 

The company used the crawler crane in SWSL 1 165t + 50t + 320t / 42m + 36m configuration. Working within a limited space at the construction site, the crew from Sarens assembled the crane over a four-day period and chose the slings for 15 attachment points.

The crane then proceeded to lift the 210t load, turn it, and store it at the place of assembly over a 24 hour period. Two operators, two fitters, and a site manager were involved in making this operation possible.

“Sarens Poland has been carrying out roof assembly of the tank with volume 32.000 square meters,” said client representative Renata Tuleja. “Sarens fulfilled its task without any reservations, in accordance with construction standards, and has overcome high technical requirements. Sarens employees provide professional services that we strongly recommend.”
