Up in the air

A new production line for material processing is currently under construction at AG Cilander.

The 17-tonne steamer, premounted on its base to a steel platform, was lifted to the requisite height of 3 m above the ground to enable the supports to be mounted underneath.

Since the steamer had to be positioned just under the ceiling, it was lifted accordingly using a girder construction (4.5 tonne) beneath the steel structure and lifting gear.
