Early October one of two TC 3200 from Sarens UK was shipped to The Netherlands to build 3 Vestas V90 windmills near Waddinxveen.
When the windmills were build I unfortunately didn't have much time to go and look. The only time I saw the crane in action was during this blade lift for windmill nr. 1.
Despite the construction year 1993 the crane is in good shape.
The next job for this crane were some more windmills in Belgium. I haven't been here but friend Frans send me this nice picture.
Then the crane came back to The Netherlands for another windmill, namely the windmill which was dissasembled with AC 650 and AC 700, for pictures click here.
After this job, more windmills in Amsterdam to be build.
This wasn't the easiest job because under 3 of 5 locations there are high-pressure pipelines right where the crane had to stand. To overcome this problem huge steel beams where used as "bridges" so the pressure of the crane was not directed toward the pipelines. Disadvantage was that the (de-)rigging of the crane was much more complicated.
Here windmill nr. 4 was just finished. The blades will be placed at a later data with a mobile crane.
This is the last windmill. After this job they had to dissamble the crane as quickly as possible because it had to go to it's next job.
His next job is unloading the stranded ship near the shore of the UK.
Wednesday evening close to 6 'o clock the huge barge with on it the TC 3200 and a Sumitomo SCX 2500 came past Spijkenisse. From this point it will take approximately 3 days before the barge arrives at the ship.
I admire the people from Sarens which derigged, transported and build up the crane on the barge in record time.
