Kununurra Diversion Dam Wall Vector Lifting Gantry CraneKununurra Diversion Dam Travelling Gantry Crane
The replacement crane for the Kununurra Diversion Dam Wall was successfully design, manufactured and installed by Vector Lifting. The crane, which straddles the Victoria Highway as it passes over the Diversion Dam Wall, was assembled in our laydown yard in Kununurra, then transported complete during the scheduled road closure. Prior to installing the new crane, the original crane was transported off the dam wall by Vector Lifting and installed at the Swim Beach Park off Millington Drive as a monument. Special thanks to Water Corporation’s Project Team lead by Michael Bunting, Michael Smith and Steve Dessent, and to Vulcan Engineering for the transport solution.
