06 May Hunter Valley Alliance Expressway Development: Theiss
The heavy weight lifter - the ASCOM SC110T Straddle Carrier
The development of the Hunter Valley Alliance Expressway Project had at its core an ASCOM 110T Straddle Carrier.
During a concentrated period of 16 months, the ASCOM 110t worked 20 hours a day, and moved in excess of 760 concrete segments weighing from 48t to 108t.
The process involved the SC110t ASCOM Straddle Carrier moving each segment on an average of 5 times, and it worked successfully for 9,600 hours over that 16 months.
The ASCOM specialist lifting technology assets can be employed to handle generators, engines, moulds, machinery, grids, pipes, steel structures, blocks, plates and pillars.
The Rubber Tyre Straddle Carrier was specified for this Theiss project by ASCOM.
