Kununurra Diversion Dam Travelling Gantry Crane
Vector Lifting was awarded the contract to replace the Kununurra Diversion Dam Travelling Gantry Crane, which permanently straddles the Victoria Hwy, a major traffic route between Western Australia and the Northern Territory. The scope of works includes removal of the existing crane, design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of the replacement crane.
The Project Team has worked collaboratively with Water Corporation Project Leaders and Stakeholders, capturing the opportunity to develop a self-powered, multitasking crane that satisfies strict safety requirements for Water Corporation and Public users of the dam.
The project will be completed by December 2018.
Key Crane Features:
Main Hoist Capacity: 2 x 10 tonne hoists
Auxiliary Hoist: 3.2 tonne with personnel rated capacity
Water Wash Down System for crane and dam use
Solar Power System
MCA Retractable Roof
Vector Lifting was contracted to design, manufacture, install and commission the Moving Roof for the new stadium upgrade for the Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne.
All components, including the main drive bogies, trailing bogies and control system were manufactured and installed by Vector Lifting. Design development and site installation included working along side the arena architect and structural engineer to develop a product that suited the design scope of the project. The complexity around the structure and the requirements outlined by the architect ensured constant collaboration was required to achieve a successful outcome.
