LIEBHERR crane dismantling

Location: Bonny Island, Nigeria

Cranes: LIEBHERR 85 ECB 5


Before we could start disassembly according to OEM specifications, we inspected both cranes. In the process, we discovered faults that we first had to rectify. Once the hoist, the trolley and the slewing gear were running smoothly, we could begin the actual task of dismantling them.
With the help of a autocrane, we then dismantled the two pieces of equipment and prepared them for removal. Below are a few pictures from this operation.
