On Monday October 9th, 2015, Wagenborg placed two earthquake-proof chimneys on the roof of a house in Spijk (Groningen, the Netherlands). Wagenborg deployed her new Palfinger PK 27002-SH compact crane for this job. 

Both chimneys had to be replaced because of earthquake damage. In order to avoid such damage in the future, both chimneys were replaced by earthquake-proof lightweight chimneys.

Due to the teflon coating, the crane doesn’t cause any damage to the pavement. Also the width of the crawlers contributes to this, as during hoisting the pressure is distributed over a larger surface. Only one of the many benefits of this new compact crane.
