Early 2007 some heavy lifting had to be done at the Keppel-Verolme yard. Main contractor was Mammoet which deployed 2x LR 1750. One of Mammoet LR 1750's; nr. 800 and the LR 1750 from Riga-Baumann.
After some time the first parts of the crane arrived.
A couple of days later the other parts of the crane arrived aswell and they started right away with the erection. The LR 1750 from Mammoet was already fully rigged.
Some trucks of Riga which had delivered the parts, first this old but nice Mercedes 2650.
And this MAN 26-502.
Some time later this Mercedes Actros 1843 came outside the gate.
On the yard of Verolme was this well known Mercedes 3250 parked. You can see in the background that they are busy fitting the luffing jib.
The heaviest piece that had to be lifted was a 700 ton module. A floating sheerleg would transport the module and place it on the quayside. The both LR 1750 would take one side and the sheerleg the other side. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the lifting works.
After the module was placed the LR 1750 from Mammoet was taken down and shipped out. The LR 1750 from Riga had to do some other lifts with mainboom only together with a LR 1350/1 from Mammoet.
The crane was ready for transport and you can see on this picture that the quick-connections for trailer transport are fitted.
Later in the evening the Titan from Baumann would arrive to pick up the crane.
On a parking lot some trailers with parts.
Around the clock of 7 I decided to go and look again and in a coincidence they just started to drive the truck of the Verolme yard.
While the driver talked with the exceptional transport escort car drivers I had the chance to take some pictures.
The last picture I took before the crane took of the Germany for its next job.
