On Tuesday 24 January, erection works on the new Wintrack high-voltage masts for Randstad 380 kv project commenced. Wagenborg Nedlift takes care of the lifting works of the mast sections. Due to the special design of the mast sections, special rigging equipment was required to handle the parts during lifting operations. Especially the radiographic shackle has many advantages: with only one crane, equipped with man basket, all rigging works can be executed. Without this remote control shackle, two cranes would be necessary to do the job. A safe and efficient solution!
