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.

- Main Hoist Capacity: 2 x 10 tonne hoists
- Auxiliary Hoist: 3.2 tonne with personnel rated capacity
