Twin GMK6400 lift


Bridgeville, Pennsylvania-based Maxim Crane Works completed a challenging dual pick at an energy plant in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company chose two 450 USt Grove GMK6400s for the delicate lift, which had the cranes lift a 75 USt vessel at the facility. The biggest hurdle was maneuvering the orientation of the vessel – it was situated north to south, but need to be placed through a roof hatch aligned east to west. To facilitate the dual rigging, Maxim used a 100 USt beam with a center lug that acted as a swivel to rotate the vessel when placed over the roof hatch. The lift took about one day to complete. Maxim will re-use this plan to place another vessel at the facility in January 2016.
