Sennebogen 683 HD works on a new canal in Singapore

23 October 2013


A Sennebogen 683 HD telescopic crawler crane has been used as part of a canal system expansion project in Singapore.

Local firm Koh Brothers Building & Civil Engineering was hired to enlarge the wastewater canals and confluence so up to 30% more rainwater could flow off in a controlled manner. The company used the Sennebogen 683 HD to install sheet piles for the canal extension. A PTC 30 HFV vibrator hammer was attached to the crane to drive 1m sheet piles to a depth of 15m into the ground.

Sennebogen said that the telescopic crawler crane's running gear meant that the 683 HD was both stable and could be moved quickly, two features that were important for the project. The manufacturer added that the crane was able to access the very narrow working area while working on top of a constructed metal platform over the canal.
