Liebherr installs Orion boom

first_imgUsing the rail-mounted heavy lift crane TCC 78000, which Liebherr inaugurated last August, the boom was connected to the crane’s slewing unit.HLPFI readers will recall that the HLC 295000 has been designed for the offshore installation vessel Orion, owned by DEME Group. It will have a maximum lifting capacity of 5,000 tonnes at an outreach of 35 m.Orion arrived in Rostock during November in preparation for the installation of the HLC 295000. All major crane elements have since been installed using the TCC 78000, which also lifted the upper part of the slewing unit and the A-frame.“The boom was the last large construction element of the HLC that had to be lifted on the Orion,” said Robert Pitschmann, sales project manager of the HLC 295000. “There are still a few steps to finalise the construction of the crane.”Once complete, Orion will be deployed for the Moray East offshore wind farm project in Scotland.www.liebherr.comwww.deme-group.comlast_img read more

Sophie Baggaley said: “Thank you to the fans who voted for this award, there were some great players who were also nominated and very deserving of this award so I’m grateful for the fans’ support. “It is great to see the performances of the squad recognised and for us to go the month unbeaten is a fantastic achievement.“We’re looking to get better week-in, week-out and I know we are all excited to see how much further we can progress as we enter the business end of the season.“Personally, I’m just trying to get better everyday in training and I’m grateful for the support of the players and the staff that push me to become the best player I can be.” Tanya Oxtoby’s side remained undefeated throughout January picking up valuable wins against Birmingham City Women, Yeovil Town Ladies and a point against table toppers Manchester City. Baggaley only conceded twice in two-hundred and seventy minutes of action and kept a clean sheet in Bristol City Women’s victory over her former side, Birmingham City. This award is Baggaley’s second PFA award of the season after being voted the first ever PFA Women’s Player of the Month back in September. last_img read more
