Two Fassi F710RAF.2.26 xhe-dynamic loader cranes with L426 jibs work on the New Champlain Bridge in Montreal
Montreal (Canada) – Two Fassi F710RAF.2.26 xhe-dynamic loader cranes with L426 jibs are being used in Montreal to build a replacement for the Champlain Bridge, which connects several boroughs of the city. The companies Signature on the Saint Lawrence and Infrastructure Canada (a governmental entity) began working in 2015 to construct another cable-stayed bridge by the end of 2018.
The versatile cranes, which both have impressive maximum lifting capacities of almost 60 tm, are used for a wide variety of operations on site, above all lifting exceptionally heavy iron girders which form the bridge’s structure. Fassi’s Canadian distributor, the Strongco Corporation, supplied the cranes.
