Recently Wagenborg Projects & Logistics was awarded the transport of a heavy Hydrohammer with Sleeve and several other parts from Kinderdijk to Vlissingen, which was carried out with the assistance of another Wagenborg Division: Wagenborg Nedlift.
The scope concerned lifting the 150 tons Hydrohammer by means of a hydraulic lifting system. After that a 13 axle hydraulic trailer with ballast tractar loaded the hydrohammer and drove to the quay. At the quay teh smaller parts and the 100 tons sleeve was loaded at the centre of a barge.
The hydrohammer was erected by means of 2 x 500 tons mobile cranes and positioned on the Sleeve for the vertical transport (height approx. 19 meters!). After all lifting operations th etransport was ready to leave Kinderdijk foor Vlissingen, where the hydrohammer will be unloaded by Wagenborg again.
