30/04/2015 King Lifting raises Bristol Sport

King Lifting supplied two 200t capacity machines to lift a 120 metre long steel truss weighing 75te into position at Aston Gate Stadium, Bristol. King Lifting used 1 x Terex AC200-1 equipped with 69te of counterweight and a Liebherr LTM1200-5.2 equipped with 72te of counterweight.

Trackway was laid on the pitch to enable both cranes to manoeuvre into there set up positions. Additional heavy outrigger matting was used to reduce the outrigger loadings to ensure no damage was caused to the pitch.

The works being undertaken by Bristol Sport involve a £45 million stadium rebuild which King Lifting has supplied various other capacity machines on site. Please see video below of the truss being lifted into position.
